Four medical students at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have been selected to receive mentored training with top biomedical scientists through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s (HHMI) Medical Research Fellows Program.
The program offers aspiring physicians and scientists $43,000 each in grant support, allowing students to spend a year conducting basic, transitional or applied biomedical research in the laboratory.
The School of Medicine’s recipients are Margery Gang, Brooke Liang, Connor Liu and Nakul Shah. Gang, Liang and Shah are among 52 students nationwide awarded the fellowship for the first time. Liu is one of 14 fellows to receive funding for a second year.
