Jonathan Jou, a junior biological sciences major, is the distinguished recipient of a fellowship to perform research this summer at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) in Cambridge, MA. Jou was selected from a highly competitive applicant pool, open to current students at Harvard or any college or university across the United States and internationally, to participate in the HSCI Summer Internship Program (HIP).
The fellowship program provides full funding for students to work for 10 weeks in the research laboratory of a Harvard faculty member. In addition, students are exposed to different professional options through a weekly stem cell seminar series that explores career paths in science and through a weekly interactive stem cell class.
Jonathan is a Glynn Family Honors and Biology Research Honors student at Notre Dame, and conducts his honors work under the mentorship of Rebecca Wingert, Elizabeth and Michael Gallagher Family Professorship in Adult Stem Cell Research and assistant professor of biological sciences.
