Some Matina S. Horner, Ph.D., Research Fellows
In 1997, we established a summer fellowship program - the first of its kind - to stimulate interest in Eating Disorders Research and to train young investigators in the field. We named the fellowship for a founding member of our Center, Matina S. Horner, Ph.D., in honor of her strong commitment to the development of women, to the advancement of science, and to the field of health care.
Over the past 16 years, our Matina S. Horner, Ph.D., Fellowship Program has sponsored 47 undergraduate and graduate students. During their 10 weeks at the Center, our fellows receive supervision and mentoring as they conduct independent research projects, participate in our research activities, and meet weekly with our staff for discussion sessions on clinical and research methodology issues in the field of eating disorders.
