Evans accepted into training institute

Michael Evans, assistant professor of hematology at Penn State College of Medicine, was one of 20 scientists nationwide selected to participate in the American Society of Hematology’s Clinical Research Training Institute.

This year-long education and mentoring program is for hematology, hematology/oncology, and hematology-related fellows-in-training as well as junior faculty physicians at academic medical centers. The goal is to prepare hematologists for careers in patient-oriented clinical research. The program includes a week-long summer workshop in California, plus two additional sessions.

"I am very excited about the opportunity provided by the training institute,” Evans said. “This will give me a chance to meet and work with over 25 senior ASH members, including the current president of ASH and the president-elect. I intend to utilize this opportunity to develop my research plan and make lasting contacts for future collaboration."

Evans’ research project proposal is to understand the role of one's immune system in the development of complications to hemophilia treatment.
