Stephanie Joy Bouley Ph.D., a Post-doctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. James Walker, has received the Dorothy and Spiro Latsis Fellowship in Neurofibromatosis Research from Boston Children’s Hospital.
Established by the Dorothy, Emma, & Spiro Latsis Benevolent Trust to support a fellowship in translational and clinical researchin neurofibromatosis, this award aims to encourage the most talented and promising clinical translational scientists to pursue promising research in the field of NF1, and to foster the careers of young scientists pursuing research dedicated to finding successful treatments for NF1.
With this two-year fellowship, Dr. Bouley will continue her work on identifying unique network signatures associated with NF1 loss in plexiform neurofibromas. In addition to funding this work, the Latsis fellowship will also allow for Stephanie to attend the annual Children Tumor Foundation’s NF Conference, a global event, now attracting nearly 500 participants worldwide across a wide range of scientific disciplines, from research and clinical backgrounds, all focused on improving outcomes for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and schwannomatosis. Congratulations Dr. Bouley!
