Please Congratulate Rachel Sousa on her National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship

Rachel won a Graduate Research Fellowship sponsored by the National Science Foundation, a major nationwide academic achievement. Her proposal is entitled “The development of a spatiotemporal mathematical model of tumor-immune dynamics to investigate the mechanisms of tumor escape and control” and is one of only six project in Mathematical Biology funded this year in the US. Rachel…
