E. Blair TowersThe Pharmacology Department would like to send out huge congratulations to E. Blair Towers (Pharmacology Grad Student in Dr.Wendy Lynch’s Lab),  for being one of the BIMS students to receive this year’s Wagner Fellowship Award. Thanks to the incredible generosity of  Dr. Robert Wagner and his wife Mary Wagner, this award provides fellowships to graduate students in the School of Medicine.  Dr. Wagner served as Professor and Chair of Microbiology from 1967-1994 and contributed in so many ways to the School of Medicine, UVA, and the scientific community at large.  These fellowships are a lasting tribute to his dedication to student training, his encouragement of young scientists, and his love of UVA.  Students are selected from a highly competitive pool of students based on their outstanding performance in graduate school. The Wagner Fellowship comes with a one-time $1K stipend supplement and up to $1K in support for professional development.

Way to go Blair! Pharm is proud of you!
