Imran awarded AMA Seed Grant

Congratulations to Imran, who has been awarded a 2009 Medical Student Seed Grant from the American Medical Association Foundation. Imran's project will investigate the role of interleukin receptors in rhabdomyosarcoma biology and therapeutic strategies. This is a great start to Imran's project as a candidate for the M.D. with Distinction in Research Program at our medical school. We're very impressed with the trajectory of this future physician-scientist.
