Researcher spotlight: F32 recipient Dr. Taylor Webb

Researcher Spotlight Series: Focus on Fellows: Dr. Taylor Webb, Ph.D.

Dr. Taylor Webb is a F32 award recipient who used the funding opportunity to study non-invasive, focal treatments for the brain using ultrasound. The F32 funding opportunity supports the research training of promising postdoctorates early in their postdoctoral training period.

The NIH BRAIN Initiative funding portfolio enables the collaborative and multidisciplinary research necessary to help us understand the brain’s complexities. Dr. Taylor Webb (University of Utah) received a BRAIN Initiative F32 Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship award to support his research to study non-invasive, focal treatments of deep brain circuits in awake subjects using ultrasound. The F32 program rewards promising postdoctorates early in their careers by enhancing their research training in project areas that advance the goals of the NIH BRAIN Initiative. This article is part of a series that highlights the careers of NIH BRAIN F32 grantees. The next deadline to apply for an F32 award is August 09, 2023
