Jarquin Wins 2 Years of Support from Hematology Society

Congratulations are in order

to our third year of doctoral studies student, PJ Jarquin! Jarquin has won a 2021 Minority Hematology Graduate Award, which includes two years of funding from the professional society for stipends and research costs along with connections to mentors and other researchers studying blood and blood disorders. PJ studies red blood cell development in health and disease here in the BSEL. He previously received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and an Emory Centennial Scholars Fellowship.

The Minority Hematology Graduate Award encourages graduate students from historically underrepresented minority groups to pursue careers in academic hematology, according to the society. The award comes with society membership, invitations to present research, and opportunities to meet leaders in the field.
