The Center of Regenerative Medicine (CRM) at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for the Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellowship in Regenerative Medicine. This fellowship honors Dr. Rita Levi-Montalcini, whose Nobel-winning discovery of nerve growth factor was among the first regenerative biology research to be done at WUSTL.

This program seeks postdoctoral researchers of outstanding talent to pursue research in regenerative medicine within a CRM lab. Fellows will be selected based on their academic achievement and potential to impact scientific research in the area of regenerative medicine. As Dr. Rita Levi-Montalcini was herself an international scholar working at WUSTL, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply. Additional information about the Center of Regenerative Medicine can be found at:

Please see Dr. Levi-Montalcini’s autobiography to learn more about her story.
