Grants, Fellowships and Awards
Posted on July 22, 2021


Congratulations to Micah Burton, a graduate student in the lab of Martin Jonikas, and Lisset Duran, a graduate student in the Avalos and Cohen labs, for being selected to receive HHMI Gilliam Fellowships to support diversity in science.

For up to three years, each adviser-student pair will receive an annual financial award. Advisers will participate in a year of mentor training, where they’ll learn about cultural identities and how to listen and engage across cultures. Fellows will be invited to attend the annual Gilliam meeting and scientific meetings at HHMI headquarters.
