Ph.D. Student, Nick Pabon, Receives Two Fellowships

We would like to congratulate second-year CPCB student Nicolas Pabon, who was awarded two fellowships.

Nick received a five-year NIH predoctoral fellowship.

“The purpose of the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship (Parent F31) is to enable promising predoctoral students to obtain individualized, mentored research training from outstanding faculty sponsors while conducting dissertation research.”

Successful applicants have a good academic record and research experience. They demonstrate the potential to develop into an independent and productive researcher in biomedical, behavioral or clinical science and also show a commitment to achieving that goal.

He also received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) Fellowship. GRFP supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions.

Nick is a part of the Camacho Group and studies protein-protein interactions and strategies for inhibiting them.
