Student/faculty research awards application information

If you have done research work with a Loma Linda University faculty member (intramural) or have completed research at a pre-approved extramural location that has led to publication (either accepted or recently in print) in a peer-review, scientific journal, you are eligible to apply for a Student Research Award.  MD/PhD students are eligible during the medical portion of their training if the publication is not a part of or a continuation of their dissertation research and not with their PhD mentor. 

The awards will be presented at the Macpherson Society Luncheon during the Annual Postgraduate Convention in March of 2024.
