Event to Showcase Green Fellowship Research
May 1, 2008
UT Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical Center will present a poster session Thursday showcasing research conducted by undergraduates in the Green Fellowship program this semester.
Students are invited to meet current Green Fellows and their mentors and ask questions about the program. The event will be on the UT Southwestern campus, in the UTSWMC ND4 lobby, outside the 4th floor ND elevators, in the north campus courtyard. Refreshments will be served.
The Green Fellowship program is in its third year. The program is coordinated by Dr. A. Dean Sherry, director of the Advanced Imaging Research Center located at UT Southwestern and holder of a Cecil H. and Ida Green Distinguished Chair in Systems Biology Science.
Green Fellows pursue individual research projects under the direction of the graduate school faculty at UT Southwestern. Fellows receive a stipend of $3,500 for the semester-long program.
The students take no classes so they can devote all of their time to their research projects. “We don’t want them distracted for an entire semester,” Dr. Sherry said.
Research areas include Biological Chemistry, Molecular Biology and Biomedical Engineering.
The list of students chosen to be the next Green Fellows will be announced by Oct. 31 for research during the Spring 2009 semester.
