OUR 2019-2020 SUMMER SCHOLARS
FACES LOOKING AHEAD
Always, The Institute seeks to develop future researchers and leaders through its mentorship programs in the fields of population genetics, public health informatics, and archival research.
These new leaders are instilled with a spirit of community and social service.
Our principal activities now focus on three mentoring programs: The Schull Institute Annual Invitational Conference, Schull Summer Scholars Research Program, and "Song Among the Ruins," our bi-national exchange program with Japan.
Since The Institute's inception, half of our fellows and scholars have returned to their countries of origin to academic or ministerial positions of major significance. Among the remaining half, some continue their education or job experience in the United States. The rest have been recruited to American universities or healthcare agencies.
WHAT OUR SCHOLARS SAY
"Besides participating in the genetic testing research, I got to shadow physicians, engage with patients, and work as a medical assistant. My Schull internship was the greatest experience ever."
— Cassandra Ramtahal, Schull Summer Research Scholar from University of St. Thomas
"Such an invigorating experience. Initially, I was somewhat daunted as a Humanities graduate student in a field of scientists, but the fellowship provided me with an opportunity to understand the importance of including humanities perspectives alongside those of science and vice versa. It is a wonderful program."
— Clint Wilson, Schull Summer Research Scholar from Rice University
"I learned so much more than the facets of healthcare, and I made valuable connections. All of the judges and professionals who came to the annual conference willingly spoke with me afterward and gave me advice on how to further my goal."
— Moushumi Sahu, Schull Summer Research Scholar from Rice University
"I found the annual conference very informative and intriguing. I was able to network and meet with professionals in the field of biology research as well as listen to research by other students. I enjoyed the variety of lecture topics presented by professors with different backgrounds.
— Angela Moreno, Schull Summer Research Scholar from University of St. Thomas
