Samar Mahmoud, an MCB PhD student in the Chien lab, was recently awarded the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Gilliam Fellowship. These prestigious awards are given to doctoral adviser-student pairs to support young scientific leaders, improve faculty mentoring skills, and foster diversity and inclusion in science. Along with funds for the fellow for stipends and educational costs, the adviser will participate in a year of mentor training. Together, these efforts aim to improve the scientific culture while supporting the next generation of research leaders.
