SUNY Upstate student receives Bristol-Myers Squibb Medical fellowship

Hasra K. Phillip, a third-year student in the College of Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University, is one of 35 students nationwide to receive a 2003 National Medical Fellowship from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Fellowship Program in Academic Medicine. The fellowship carries an award of $6,000 and allows Phillip to work directly with mentors on a research project in a major biomedical research laboratory.

Phillip will spend eight weeks this winter working in the laboratory of Linda Fried, M.D., M.P.H., professor and director of the Center on Aging and Health at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and with Crystal Simpson, M.D., a researcher in geriatric medicine. Fried’s laboratory is investigating preclinical mobility disability, the stage prior to observed mobility decrease, and its role in disease progression in healthy, non-disabled older women.
