Brenda Daniels Memorial Scholarship

The Department of Physiology & Biophysics is pleased to announce the Brenda Daniels Scholarship. Dr. Brenda Daniels received her Ph.D. from the Dept. of Physiology & Biophysics at Stony Brook University in May 2002. Her research focused on the structural basis of protein function. Brenda was diagnosed with lung cancer soon after obtaining her doctorate and died in 2006.

To honor Brenda’s career, the Department of Physiology & Biophysics has initiated an annual $2500 scholarship beginning June 2009. The award will target an upper level female under-represented minority student in any academic department. Please become part of this endeavor by making a contribution to the Stony Brook Foundation account #220480 with a note stating that this donation is towards the Brenda Daniels Memorial Fund.
