MD/PhD Candidate
Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University

Philadelphia, PA

Ms. Charsar will receive a $3,500 scholarship to support her research project titled: “Classification of Mutations in TUBB4A: A New Spectrum of Disease.”Ms. Charsar stated: “My goal is to push the limits on the current boundaries of what we know as scientists and physicians of how to best care for and treat children with neurological diseases, and in particular, children with leukodystrophies. Now, with support from the Child Neurology Foundation… I am able to work toward bringing this vision of a physician scientist to fruition, becoming ambidextrous with expertise in both worlds to directly help children and families affected by leukodystrophies at the bedside while continuing to expand our understanding of these diseases, causes and treatment options at the bench. After completing my training, I would like to pursue a career in child neurology and to devote a life of research to leukodystrophies.”

Congratulations, Brittany!
