Immunology awarded a Rackham Faculty Allies grant!

Malini Raghavan and Immunology students secure Rackham funding for Immunology program!

Please join me in thanking Dr. Malini Raghavan who submitted a grant proposal to Rackham on behalf of the Immunology graduate program as our Faculty Ally Representative that was just selected for funding!

I cannot tell you how appreciative I am of the time and effort Malini and a group of our students put into thinking about strategies to enhance the training, environment and mentorship in our program.  Clearly Rackham agreed!

One of the proposed activities was to provide support for an annual one-on-one dinner meeting between each mentor-mentee pair, to provide a platform for communication and constructive feedback in an informal setting.  I think this will be a terrific opportunity to help insure that mentees and mentors are on the same page, so please be watching for an announcement to plan this event.

This is such a wonderful opportunity for our graduate program!  Stay tuned for future events as well!

Many, many, thanks Malini!  You help make Michigan great!
