Congratulations to Karim Abdelaal​ of the Dzirasa Lab on being awarded a Gilliam Fellowship from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study support exceptional graduate students who are conducting outstanding research in their respective scientific fields and their advisers who are committed to building a more inclusive scientific ecosystem. The Gilliam Program invests in graduate students from populations historically excluded and underrepresented in science so that they are prepared to become scientific leaders.
