Profs. Wang and Cheung Awarded Mellon Mutual Mentoring Grants
Profs. Dong Wang and Alice Cheung, along with four other faculty from the Microbiology and Plant, Soil and Insect Sciences Departments, are members of a team awarded a Mellon Mutual Mentoring Grant to establish a mentoring program that brings together new, early-career, and/or tenured faculty as mentoring partners around a particular issue.
Dr. Wang will also be hosting one high school student in his research lab this summer as part of the Summer College Research Intensive. Mentored by a UMASS undergraduate, qualified High School students are integrated into the research activities and treated as a member of the team.
