Alabama State University Awarded $1.47 Million from NIH to Train Students in Biomedical Research! (41 hits)

Alabama State University has been awarded a five-year, $1.47 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to train minority students to become future scientists in the field of biomedical sciences.

Dr. Vida A. Dennis, professor of Microbiology and co-director of ASU’s Center for NanoBiotechnology (CNBR), will manage the project while Dr. Shree Singh, professor of microbiology and director of the CNBR serves as the project's principal investigator.

“CNBR will continue to diversify the pool of Ph.D. students in biomedical research through funding from the NIH-National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) for its Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) Program,” Singh said.

The goals of the NIGMS-RISE program are to continue to provide support to masters of science (M.S.) students in biology and to enrich the research environment at ASU with a primary focus on intense training and mentoring of participating trainees for completion of Ph.D. programs at major U.S. institutions in the field of biomedical research or behavioral sciences.

“CNBR has partnered with several external research-intensive institutions in the nation that will work with ASU to help mentor and train M.S. students, making them highly competitive for entry to research-focused Ph.D. programs in the biomedical fields,” Singh said.

Singh said with funding from the NIH, many M.S. graduate students and research scientists at ASU will be able to expand their scientific capabilities in biomedical research.

“A team of ASU faculty researchers will mentor and supervise students’ research project and will also help in the implementation of research and educational program activities,” Singh said.
