Congratulations to Yuting P. Chiang, MD, General Surgery Research Fellow, and mentor Dawn E. Bowles, PhD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Division of Surgical Sciences, on receiving the Pfizer-NCBiotech Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship in Gene Therapy (Pfizer-GTF). Their proposal, entitled Evolving Inside the Box: A Novel Approach to Generate AAV Vector for Cardiac Gene Therapy Applications, will be funded in full.

The Pfizer-GTF, a joint program by Pfizer, Inc., and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, enables scientists early in their careers to conduct two years of funded research in any gene therapy laboratory at a North Carolina university.

Dr. Chiang’s fellowship begins November 1, 2018.
