Monique and George Braude Student Travel Award Recipients
The ICRS is pleased to announce that 10 pre-Doctoral and post-Doctoral students were each awarded $500 to attend the 2014 ICRS meeting through a generous bequest from the Monique C. and George L. Braude Memorial Foundation.
Dr. Monique C. Braude spent her career at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), where she was instrumental in promoting preclinical research in cannabis and cannabinoids. In addition to her passion for cannabinoid research, Dr. Braude believed strongly in helping women enter scientific careers. She was a member and strong supporter of Graduate Women in Science.
Dr. Braude was born in Lisieux, France in 1925. Her undergraduate degree was in pharmacy and she worked as a drug store pharmacist for a while but then moved to the Laboratoires Blaque as chief of production of drug specialties. At the end of WW II, she met her future husband, George, a French chemical engineer from Halle, Germany. They were married in Paris in 1949 and moved to the United States in the early 1950’s.
