Biomedical graduate student lands summer fellowship at NIH in Washington, D.C.
Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences graduate student David Supeck was recently selected as a 2013 Intramural AIDS Summer Research Fellowship at the National Institute of Health. He is currently working on his doctoral degree in biomedical sciences at OSU-CHS.
"I became interested in the program because the National Health Institute is devoted to biomedical research and encompasses my interest in immunology," Supeck said. "I'm excited to explore science research with scientists in my field and expand my research knowledge, abilities, and future as a research scientist."
Supeck, a Tulsa resident, learned about the program while attending an NIH workshop last year at the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science National Conference. He will spend the summer in Washington, D.C. working with a laboratory at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.
"We're proud of David and his opportunity to contribute to research at a national level," said Randall L. Davis, Ph.D., director of the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at OSU-CHS. "His experience with this unique global research program will be invaluable as he continues his career in research."
Supeck is a National Science Foundation Fellow, an Alfred P. Sloan Scholar and a graduate scholar of the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science.
