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.
