Biomedical Research

The Biomedical Research program is devoted to strengthening experimental basic research in the biomedical sciences. Revson provides two kinds of fellowship awards to exceptionally talented scientists.

Each year, the Charles H. Revson Senior Fellowship in Biomedical Science is offered competitively to eight outstanding researchers in their third or fourth years of postdoctoral studies at participating New York Metro area research institutions.

We also support the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Postdoctoral Program for Advancing Women in Science, which provides supplementary financial support to Israeli women scientists who have already been awarded postdoctoral fellowships by prestigious institutions in North America.

Featured Project: Spotlight on the Revson Fellowship class of 2015-2017

After a rigorous selection process, eight extraordinary Post-Doctoral researchers have been chosen for the Charles H. Revson Senior Fellowship in Biomedical Science! Please welcome our Revson Fellowship class of 2015-2017! 


Dr. Timothy Davies – Columbia University Medical School

Dr. Davies’ research focuses on uncovering how polarity controls cell division in a multi-cellular environment. He received his B.A. in Zoology and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.


Dr. Adeen Flinker – New York University

Dr. Flinker’s research centers around developing a new framework for cortical asymmetries in processing speech. After receiving his B.A. in Computer Science from the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, Dr. Flinker went on to receive his Doctorate of Philosophy and Neuroscience from the University of California, Berkeley.


Dr. Gabrielle Girardeau – New York University School of Medicine

Dr. Girardeau is currently researching the neural bases of emotional memory consolidation. She received a B.S in Life Sciences, an M.S. in Integrative Biology and Physiology, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France.


Dr. Katerina Hatzi – Weill Cornell Medical College

Dr. Hatzi’s research revolves around understanding the role of LSD1 in germinal responses and lymphoma self-renewal. Dr. Hazti received her B.S. in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece. After that, she received her M.S. in Molecular Biology from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Weill Cornell Medical College.

Kourtis_CRDr. Nikolaos Kourtis – New York University School of Medicine

Dr. Kourtis is researching the post-translational regulation of cancer cell stress response and metastasis. He received his B.S. in Biology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece. He then went on to receive his M.S. in Molecular Biology and his Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics from the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology in Crete, Greece.

linDr. Wen-Hsuan Lin – Columbia University Medical Center

Dr. Lin’s research is focused on regenerating immunity to infection and cancer. She received her M.D. from the National Cheng Kung University in Tianan, Taiwan. After that, she received her Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, with a Vaccine Science and Policy Certificate, from Johns Hopkins University.
