New York City Minority Graduate Student Network

 "Embracing diversity at the bench"


I just wanted to tell you that I was very proud of the message I read.  Supporting the scientific community by increasing the interactions is a way to go.  I was part of the MARC/MBRS program at Brooklyn College and it helped me to get through my Ph.D.   I have  been working for the ARMY in platelet research for almost 3 years now.  As I departed from NY I was sad to see that minority funds were being reduced/frozen and other minorities professors were having difficulties to keep grants.  I often remember them and I thank  them sincerely in my thoughts.  Dr Lipke, Dr Angulo, Dr Eckhardt were my mentors.  I also remember Dr Bramwell from BC who was in charge of the MARC program.  
I think we need to support the scientific community.  I am very proud to hear that there is an institution that continues to involve minorities and help them.  

very respectfully,
