The National Institute of General Medical Science has awarded a five-year, $1.85 million research grant to Delaware State University’s (DSU) biological sciences program.

Dr. Melissa Harrington, professor of biological sciences, and Dr. Hwan Kim, assistant professor of biological sciences, obtained the grant.

“RISE ““ Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement ““ annually provides stipend and tuition support for master’s and Ph.D. students in the Department of Biological Sciences throughout the five-year period,” said Dr. Harrington, who is also director of the Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research and the interim associate vice president of the Delaware Institute for Science and Technology.

The grant seeks to increase the number of students from groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and help them complete Ph.D. degrees.
