MARC fellows for 2013-15
Congratulations to the following Drew scholars on being selected as MARC fellows for 2013-15!
Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) is an institutional grant awarded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of General Medical Sciences to increase the number of highly-trained underrepresented biomedical and behavioral scientists in leadership positions to significantly impact the health-related research needs of the nation. Nationally, groups found to be underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research include, but are not limited to, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Alaska Natives and natives of the U.S. Pacific Islands.
MSU was awarded the MARC grant in 2013 to fund four students. Students chosen as MARC fellows are matched with faculty mentors to conduct research, attend conferences and professional development workshops. They also receive an award that covers tuition and fees along with a monthly stipend. Drew Scholars chosen as MARC fellows for 2013 - 2015 are:
- Leena Babiker
- Kelly Montgomery
- Guillermo Moreno
