Wilson Hope 2018WEBHope Wilson, M.D., assistant professor in the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, received a Loan Repayment Program (LRP) award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

These awards are part of a program established up by Congress to help recruit and retain health professionals in the field of biomedical research. The cost of medical education and training may discourage physicians from pursuing careers in research for higher paying private practice careers. The LRP provides physicians with financial assistance in exchange for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research. The program will repay up to $50,000 a year for an initial two-year period.

Congratulations Dr. Wilson!
