Congratulations to Dr. Mazhar Adli for selection as a 2019 Pinn Scholar. His project entitled “Identifying synthetic lethal partners of recurrent cancers mutations through massively parallel combinatorial double knockout genetic screens” was chosen as one of four to be awarded in 2019.
“Named in honor of the extraordinary career of Dr. Vivian Pinn, one of the first African American graduates of the UVA School of Medicine, the Pinn Scholars Program seeks to recognize and reward research faculty whose scientific expertise and productivity, mentorship, and service have resulted in significant contributions to the School of Medicine and greater research community. Up to four scholars will be chosen each year. Scholars will receive funds to elevate their science, will be mentored by senior faculty, and will participate in annual symposia.”
