Congratulations to Jia Zhao for winning two prestigeous awards from the Biology Department. The first one is the Clifford W. Hesseltine Scholarship in Biology, which recognizes one Biology or Biomedical Sciences student of sophomore or junior, who is undertaking laboratory research and have a strong academic record (GPA > 3.5). She was also accepted into the Iowa Biosciences Academy (IBA), which is an NIH-funded program that supports the academic and personal success of University of Iowa students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the Biosciences. It will provide financial support as well as academic tutoring for graduate school applications. Well done Jia, proud of your achievement!
