The Foundation grant program is extremely valuable, particularly for a junior investigator, by providing the resources to have dedicated research time under the mentorship of a senior advisor… The Foundation has had a significant impact in my growth as a junior investigator. During the grant period, I have strengthened my grant writing abilities and research methodology, which will be invaluable in any future research endeavors that I undertake. Under the guidance of my mentor, I have also learned how to accomplish aims more efficiently and write scientific articles more effectively. In addition, I have also learned how to assume more of a leadership role in research projects. All of these skills will serve me well in future and was only made possible by the generosity of the Foundation of the ASNR. And for that, I am extremely grateful.
