By September 7, 2022No Comments

Maya Woolfolk, a PhD candidate in the lab of Hopi Hoekstra, has been awarded the 2022 Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The Gilliam Fellowship is granted to students from populations underrepresented in science who have the promise to become leaders in their fields.

“I’m thrilled to be selected for this fellowship,” says Woolfolk. “As hopefully a future professor, I try to take part in things that give me experience and will make me a better mentor and a better teacher and better at outreach to the community.”
