Pharmacy graduate student Dawn Kim-Romo has been selected by the PhRMA Foundation to receive a $25,000 predoctoral fellowship.
She was selected to receive the award by the Health Outcomes Advisory Committee. The fellowship could begin as early as July 1, 2013 for one year with a potential for a second year of funding.
The award recipient is a Ph.D. candidate studying under the direction of Dr. Karen L. Rascati, professor of health outcomes and pharmacy practice.
The Pre Doctoral Fellowship Program is designed for candidates who expect to complete the requirements for the Ph.D. in the field of health outcomes in two years or less. The PhRMA Foundation fellowship aims to support promising students during their research by providing a stipend and funds to cover costs incidental to their training. For almost 50 years, the PhRMA Foundation has helped thousands of scientists advance their careers and has inspired new generations to enter biopharmaceutical research.
