Eleven second-year IU medical students have received scholarship awards through the Indiana Medical Student Program for Research and Scholarship (IMPRS), a collaboration of IU School of Medicine and the Indiana CTSI.

The students, who all participated in the IMPRS summer internship program, were first selected from a research poster session including 105 presenters. Then, 21 finalists were selected to give oral presentations to a panel of judges, including IU School of Medicine’s Janice Blum, PhD; Rebecca Chan, MD, PhD; Reubin Kapur, PhD; Peter J. Roach, PhD; and Timothy Sutton, MD, PhD. The scholarship money will go toward the students’ tuition.
