Many congratulations to Imran Alsam who has been selected as a Medical Research Fellows Program of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. This unique and prestigious program permits high-achieving medical students to take a year away from medical school to conduct focused research. For his year, Imran will work on tumor cell evolution in a collaborative project between the Keller and Druker laboratories.
Congratulations again, Imran, on this great achievement along your path to becoming leading physician-scientist!
