Two postdoctoral fellows were recognized with prestigious designations by NCI. Talia Wegman-Ostrosky, M.D., PhD., was accepted into the Diversity Career Development Program (DCDP), and Manila Hada, Ph.D., was awarded the Sallie Rosen Kaplan (SRK) Postdoctoral Fellowship for Women Scientists for 2018.
These fellows were selected from a highly competitive applicant pool; both programs reported a greater number of applications this year.
The DCDP was designed to provide NCI intramural postdoctoral trainees from underrepresented groups leadership skills and tools to meet with success in independent research careers.
The goal of the SRK program is to better equip NCI female postdoctoral fellows to remain in a biomedical research career. Fellows will receive additional mentoring and will take part in seminars and workshops designed to strengthen leadership skills.
