Melissa Wilkinson, a 3rd year JGPT student in the Gow laboratory, was selected for the prestigious Washington Fellows program by the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET). The mission of the ASPET Washington Fellows Program is to advance the training of early career scientists interested in science policy in order to become more engaged in public policy issues. Fellows learn about how public policy decisions made in Washington, D.C. help shape and impact science policy, including funding for the National Institutes of Health. Fellows also learn how to advocate effectively on Capitol Hill and in their home districts. Congratulations Melissa!
