Elizabeth Boehm Advanced to Nationals in Lasker Essay Contest

Elizabeth Boehm, a graduate student in Todd Washington’s Lab, was one of three students who won the internal competition for the Lasker Essay Contest (http://laskerfoundation.org/programs/contest.htm). Her essay was titled “Creation of an Independent Trust for Sustainable Funding of Medical Research.” She advanced forward to nationals, but was not ranked.

The contest, open to medical school students and fellows; doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows in biomedical research; graduate students in public health programs; and graduate students in other health professions programs at U.S-accredited institutions, accepted essays supporting medical research.

Congratulations, Elizabeth!
