  • Sonia Guar, Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia. "The program is an incredible opportunity for us to get involved with NIH at an early stage of our careers, and is an invaluable experience in preparing us to be the next generation of physicians who are able to advance innovative patient care through research. I am so excited to work closely with mentors and future colleagues who are united by a strong passion for expanding and tackling medicine through the process of discovery."
  • Richard Smith, Drexel University College of Medicine: "I am truly excited about my upcoming year at the NIH as part of the Medical Research Scholars Program because it will be a time of unbridled curiosity, learning and discovery likened to my childhood days of "discovering" bugs and plants in the backyard and all the other memorable experiences that attracted me towards science and medicine in the first place."
