The New England Journal of Medicine published today an article on polycythemia vera, a rare blood disease in which the body makes too many red blood cells, co-authored by Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics Michael Ochs and Dr. Jerry Spivak, director of the Center for the Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders at Johns Hopkins.
Exceptional TCNJ sophomore and junior students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in science, mathematics, or engineering are encouraged to apply for Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships. The scholarship, which provides $7,500 per year for up to two years, is highly prestigious. Therefore, even those students with full scholarships are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be evaluated based upon academic excellence, evidence of service and leadership, student research involvement (although this is not expected for sophomore applicants), and the student’s statement of his/her future research goals.
