PhD candidate Miriam Lipton received a four-month virtual fellowship with the prestigious Linda Hall Library.

“The Linda Hall Library is the world’s foremost independent research library devoted to science, engineering, and technology.”

Lipton’s fellowship includes four months of research funding for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The external review committee expressed their piqued interested in Lipton’s investigations into Soviet antibiotic and bacteriophage research during the Cold War. The committee believes that Lipton’s work will benefit greatly from collections within the Library.


Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, research institutions work to be as accommodating as possible with travel restrictions. For this reason, all of the 2021-2022 Linda Hall Library Fellowships will be virtual, enabling researchers to access the collections remotely and from the safety of their own homes.

Lipton’s grant will be used to support access to and research within Russian language Soviet medical journals.


A distinguished award for a deserving candidate, Congratulations Miriam!
