The Association of Minority Biomedical Researchers (AMBR) is launching its second annual Empowerment in Science teach-in series for the 2019-2020 academic year. This series is designed to inspire students and the GSBS community to engage in discussions about important social justice issues; learn how to navigate them; to be active allies; and find resources.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the University of Puerto Rico received a competitive renewal of their Comprehensive Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (CPACHE) grant from the National Cancer Institute. The CPACHE grant provides a total of $13 million over five years.
GSBS student Melissa Franch's lay summary about preclinical research into how the brain manages social interactions was highlighted at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual meeting in Chicago Oct. 19-23.
The Association of Minority Biomedical Researchers will be featuring interviews with its members as a way to highlight GSBS students and life inside and outside of the lab. This feature will be posted on the group's website and Facebook page. AMBR’s sixth spotlight features an interview with GSBS second-year PhD student Sreeja Sridharan.
