UB Medical Students Will Be NIH Fellows

Published July 20, 2010

Anita Tipirneni and Gary Altwerger, third-year medical students at UB, will spend the upcoming year as fellows in the Clinical Research Training Program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

An individualized program is developed for the fellows, who will attend clinics, see patients on the wards, and work with a principal NIH investigator on selected clinical research projects to be determined on-site.

They also will attend lectures on clinical research and participate in interactive, group learning activities with the members of the class and leading NIH physicians and scientists.

Only 30 students a year are accepted into the program.
