Marshall SOM researcher receives award to fund undergraduate research positions

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Nalini Santanam, Ph.D., MPH, FAHA, a professor in the department of biomedical sciences at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, has received a multi-year grant to fund undergraduate students to perform cardiovascular-related research at the school.  

The three-year, $60,000 award from the American Heart Association will fund five positions for undergraduate student internships.  In addition to the AHA funding, the school of medicine, under the direction of Dean Joseph I. Shapiro, M.D., has provided institutional support for the project.

“This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in research related to heart disease at Marshall University,” Santanam said.

Students are selected for the program via a competitive application process.
