NF Center Trainee Awarded Francis S. Collins Scholar Award

Nicole M. Brossier, MD, PhD was recently awarded a Francis S. Collins Program in Neurofibromatosis Clinical and Translational Research Award. This program is directed by the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program at Johns Hopkins University, and is designed to foster the career development of the next generation of leaders in NF.

Dr. Brossier is finishing her postdoctoral research training in the laboratory of NF Center Director, David H. Gutmann, MD, PhD, where she has focused on understanding the risk factors for brain tumor development in children with NF1. In addition, Dr. Brossier currently cares for children with NF1 brain tumors at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

We extend our congratulations to Dr. Brossier, who is the second Francis S. Collins Scholar from the NF Center, joining Dr. Angela C. Hirbe from Medical Oncology.
