Ackerman named a 2023 Klingenstein-Simons fellow


Sarah Ackerman, an assistant professor of pathology and immunology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, has received a 2023 Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Award in Neuroscience. She is one of 13 new fellows — all early-career scientists in the U.S. — who will receive three-year $300,000 grants to pursue high-risk, cutting-edge research.
