Darlan Conterno Minussi, graduate student in the Navin Lab, awarded the 2021-2022 Schissler Foundation Fellowship
The Schissler Foundation Fellowship fosters collaboration with the emphasis on basic science projects with the greatest likelihood of translational application to human health. This prestigious awards gives significant help to research studies that will seek to make major contributions to the therapies and cures of common human disease through genetics.
Hanghui Ye, graduate student in the Navin Lab, awarded the 2021-2022 Andrew Sowell-Wade Huggins Fellowship in Cancer Research
This award is given in recognition of excellence in a faculty-student team.
