Congratulations to Northwestern postdocs: Booker Davis IV (Dept. of Surgery) and Ewa Bomba-Warczak (Dept. of Neurology) for their NIH MOSAIC awards! The award is part of the NIH's efforts to enhance diversity within the biomedical field and is designed to facilitate the transition of promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds into independent, tenure-track or equivalent research-intensive faculty positions.

NIH awards only about 30-40 MOSAIC grants each year nationwide, therefore it's quite a recognition for Northwestern and our postdoctoral fellow community.
