Congrats to the inaugural MARC cohort’s graduation and acceptance into highly rated PhD programs and research positions! We couldn’t be prouder of their work here at Rutgers Camden and can’t wait to see what they discover during their next steps into the world of research! The MARC program’s primary goal is to prepare Rutgers Camden undergraduates to take on leading roles in research after they graduate and eventually land a position in a PhD program. To accomplish this, it takes dedication from the students, a supportive community of friends and family, and a mosaic of mentors. We thank each and every component for helping in their success. See where they’re going below:

Shariq Khan was accepted into the lab of Dr. James Shorter at the University of Pennsylvania where he’ll study how proteins fold in human diseases!

Anna Liang was accepted into the lab of Dr. Wei Tong at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where she’ll study the molecular underpinnings of leukemias!

Harjit Kaira was accepted into a PhD program at Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Computational Biology in Baltimore, MD!

William Myers was accepted into a PhD program at University of Michigan’s Program in Biomedical Sciences in Ann Arbor, MI!
