UM Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics Awards Graduate Fellowships

June 09, 2015

MISSOULA – Seven University of Montana graduate students recently were awarded Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics Graduate Student Fellowships for the summer of 2016.

Five graduate students earned summer fellowships of up to $6,000 and two graduate students earned summer fellowships of up to $3,000.

Through the summer fellowship, CBSD aims to help UM’s departments grow and sustain their graduate programs by subsidizing existing teaching assistant positions, which do not provide summer stipends.

The summer 2016 Fellowship selection is:

  • Adam Drobish: cellular, molecular and microbial biology
  • Lauren Foltz: cellular, molecular and microbial biology
  • Alexander Nord: computer science and cellular, molecular and microbial biology
  • William Penny: biochemistry and biophysics
  • Jim Reed: cellular, molecular and microbial biology
  • Denis Shchepakin: math and neurobiology
  • Xiaobo Wang: cellular, molecular and microbial biology
