Kashmiri scientist receives Sloan Research Fellowship 2023

Dr. Mubarak Hussain Syed, a Kashmiri professor, is one of 125 scientists from the United States and Canada named as Sloan Research Fellows for 2023.

These two-year, $75,000 fellowships are awarded yearly to early career researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.

The Sloan Research Fellowship Program recognizes and rewards outstanding early-career faculty who have the potential to revolutionize their fields of study.

An assistant professor from Kashmir, of Biology at The University of New Mexico, Mubarak Hussain Syed, earlier received the prestigious career award from the National Science Foundation that will allow him to pursue his passions of understanding brain development and function and mentoring students.

In 2021, his project based on, “Mechanisms regulating neural identity, connectivity, and function- From stem cells to circuits,” received $1.8 million for five years.

Syed, a neuroscientist, is interested in the development and function of neurons, glia (other cell types in the human brain), and neural circuits. Syed’s lab studies developmental programs regulating neural diversity and function – from stem cells to neural circuits.

Mubarak has been very passionate about science and reaching out to the local schools by visiting the classroom.

He has been involved in many activities for a while and plans on continuing to do so.
