Board of Tutors: Neurobiology

Members of the Harvard research community are nominated and elected to the Board of Tutors after demonstrating outstanding qualities as research mentors. The 'Board if Tutor' scientists have been outstanding, not only in their research, but in teaching student researchers the intellectual and practical skills necessary for excellence in scientific research.
