STORY/PHOTO OP: This summer, the University of South Carolina-Clemson rivalry is being put aside as UofSC School of Medicine Greenville students are working in the Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center’s labs at Clemson University as part of a new program called MEnTOR ( Medical Enrichment Through Opportunities in Research). This program is made possible through a National Institutes of Health T35 (medical) training grant awarded to Clemson and UofSC School of Medicine Greenville. This is the first NIH training grant Clemson has received. For eight weeks, the medical students will conduct laboratory-based research of eukaryotic pathogens, which are causative agents of diseases such as malaria, sleeping sickness and fungal meningitis; build mentoring relationships with physician-scientists; and participate in weekly workshops on advanced research techniques and instrumentation used to diagnose infectious diseases. Click here for more information about the program. Contact Frances Parrish at 864-616-4836 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a visit to the labs Friday.
The Nominating Committee of the board of trustees will have a teleconference meeting at 11 a.m. Friday to review nominations for the board chair to be presented at the summer meeting in July. The call will originate from the Governmental Affairs office, 1201 Main St., Suite 1950, Columbia. The agenda is posted online. For information, contact Joe Galbraith (email@example.com, 662-418-3970).
