Oakwood University Students Compete, Gain Summer Research Positions With Prominent Companies and Schools (246 hits)

The Increasing Minority Admission to Research Institutions (IMARI) project at Oakwood University is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Health. It is designed to increase the pool of competitive minority students electing to pursue advanced biomedical research careers. IMARI combines successful components and activities continued from previous grants as well as innovative components to better prepare a new cadre of young scientists for biomedical and behavioral research careers.

IMARI students are trained in laboratory procedures regarding their field of interest, and are matched with renown institutions to conduct research during the summer:

Mayo Clinic - Kiera Yankson
Cleveland Clinic - Vanesa Ochieng
Univ. of Cincinnati - Kasey Harry, Subirah Hendrickson
Univ. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill - DeCelia Browne, Danielle Little, Keith Rogers, Jr., Claire Stewart
Johns Hopkins - Samuel Parkins
Univ. of Buffalo at New York - Esther Greeman, Terry Henry, Jr.
Loma Linda University - Ravon Baynard, Kirlann Danclar, Jasmine Walsh

On October 6, 14 students presented their research in the form of posters and oral presentations at Oakwood's Annual Biomedical Research Symposium. Posters and presentations were judged for clarity and evidence of understanding the subject matter, for an opportunity to win cash prizes. The first place prize winner was Kiera Yankson; second place - Keith Rogers, Jr., and Jasmine Walsh; third place - Kirlann Danclar.
