Student in joint Tufts-JAX Ph.D. program receives NIH service award.

Logan Schwartz is earning her Ph.D. in mammalian genetics through a joint program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Tufts University in Boston and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) in Bar Harbor, Maine. Schwartz also works in the laboratory of JAX Associate Professor Jennifer Trowbridge, Ph.D.

Schwartz recently learned she would be the recipient of a National Institutes of Health fellowship. The Ruth L. Kirschstein Predoctoral Individual National Research Service Award was designed to help promising predoctoral students to develop into independent research scientists by obtaining mentored research training while conducting their dissertation research.

“I am excited, honored, and grateful to have received this award,” Schwartz says. “I feel fortunate to have been afforded the opportunity to continue my work in the Trowbridge Laboratory."

Trowbridge adds, “I am thrilled to see the NIH support Logan, a very promising young investigator, to pursue exciting research questions and immerse herself in training towards earning her Ph.D.”
