Congratulations to Dr. Donna Hammond

Congratulations to Dr. Donna Hammond, who received a five year award for her grant, "Iowa Post-Baccalaureate Research Education in the Biomedical Sciences."  This award is an NIH R25 grant for $1.2 million over the next five years. This is in addition to the T32 training grant Dr. Hammond has already received.

This new post-baccalaureate research education program is designed to address hurdles that hamper diversity in the biomedical sciences. It will draw upon the collective talent and commitment of more than 40 experienced faculty to provide an exceptional experience each year to 5 talented participants, who are members of underrepresented groups, and will enable them to be highly competitive for top-tier PhD or MD/PhD programs.
