Past Grantees

Financial support from the Jurassic Foundation allowed me to study ornithomimosaurs all over the world and made a great impact on understanding of the detailed anatomy and phylogenetic relationships of ornithomimosaurs, which had been attempted by many scientists for more than 100 years but had not been successful.” – Yoshitsugu Kobayashi, Ph.D., Hokkaido University, Japan JF grantee Spring 2002
