Madison – Jerome A. Behrens, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Behrens, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), is among 27 entering and 41 first and second year medical students at the University of Wisconsin here who have received $800 for summer research fellowships.
Funds for the 10-week program have been made available through the National Institutes of Health and private foundations.
Each student who was chosen for the award by the Medical School Summer Student Research Fellowship Committee, is doing research in a specific area under the direction of a member of the UW Medical School faculty.
According to Dr. Robert D. Coye, assistant dean of the Medical School, the aim of the program is to provide support for medical students who display an interest in research, primarily in the basic medical sciences.
Dr. Coye noted this is the second year that students who will enter medical school in the fall, have participated in the program. Seven more are participating than were last year. He pointed out the purpose of the Medical School Summer Fellowship Program is to ultimately lead an increased number of medical school graduates into careers in medical research.
Behrens is a second year medical student in medicine.
