Six scientists named inaugural Mong neurotech fellows

Three pairs of early career scientists have been named the inaugural Mong Family Foundation Fellows in Neurotech. They will work jointly under the mentorship of faculty across Cornell to advance technologies that promise to provide insight into how brains work, as well as strategies to fix them when they break. The fellowships are part of the multimillion-dollar seed grant from the Mong Family Foundation, through Stephen Mong ’92, MEN ’93, MBA ’02, which launched the Cornell Neurotech collaboration between the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Engineering in 2015.
