Two MCDB graduate students were recently awarded Rackham Predoctoral Fellowships. Meiyan Jin is part of the Klionsky Lab,  and Zepeng Yao is with the Shafer Lab.

The fellowship supports outstanding doctoral students who have achieved candidacy and are actively working on dissertation research and writing.  It seeks to support students working on dissertations that are unusually creative, ambitious and risk-taking. Fellowships include a stipend, candidacy tuition and required fees for twelve months.
