Santanam receives undergraduate student research award

Dr. Nalini Santanam of the department of Pharmacology, Physiology and Toxicology at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, and her team have received the Great Rivers Affiliate Undergraduate Student Research Program Award from the American Heart Association for a program at Marshall scheduled for summer 2015.

The grant encourages promising students from all disciplines, including women and members of minority groups underrepresented in the sciences, to consider research careers while supporting high quality scientific investigation broadly related to cardiovascular disease and stroke.

The peer-reviewed process focuses on evaluation of program organization, training opportunities, science and academic qualifications of faculty, resources and funding available to students and history of student research training.
