Recent developments in technology and ground-breaking research approaches from MIT are creating new ways to combat brain diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, as well as offer new strategies to promote healthy brain aging.
MIT and Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, have partnered to move this work forward. By supporting research, education and the innovative technology development through “la Caixa” Postdoctoral Fellowships, MIT has the potential to help revolutionize treatment for brain diseases and improve quality of life.
To do so, “la Caixa” Foundation and MIT join forces to offer two postdoctoral fellowships for up to three years in neuroscience research at MIT to the most talented PhD graduates. La Caixa offers these fellowships to support researchers with Spanish or Portuguese nationality or other researchers who have earned their PhDs in Spain or Portugal. Preference will be given to those who have project interests related to brain aging.
