The Graduate Division is pleased to announce the students chosen for the inaugural cohort of UCSF Discovery Fellows. Students were selected for this honor on the basis of their leadership potential, excellence in research, community-mindedness, and communications skills.
One of the strengths of the Graduate Division's Summer Research Training Program (SRTP) is that it not only gives undergraduate students an outstanding research experience, but also guidance and practice in presenting their research findings to others.
The Graduate Division has learned that several of this year's SRTP students gave posters or talks on the research they did at UCSF this summer at national conferences in the fall. We congratulate especially the following students, who were recognized for their outstanding presentations.
Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies, a new book by UCSF MD/PhD alumnus and faculty member Seth Holmes, paints a vivid portrait of the people behind the food on our plates — an intimate look at the everyday lives, suffering, and resilience of Mexican migrant farmworkers.
Shaun Abrams, a graduate student in the Oral and Craniofacial Sciences PhD graduate program — a DDS/PhD degree candidate, won a Most Outstanding Presentation Award for Clinical Science Research at the Hinman Student Research Symposium in Memphis, Tennessee.
