The U.S. National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center awarded Co-Principle Investigators Lara Stemple (UCLA) and Craig Cohen (UCSF) a one-year grant through the UCGHI’s Center of Expertise on Women’s Health & Empowerment. This grant creates a fellowship program to train a diverse group of UCLA and UCSF fellows to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research and build partnerships throughout the University of California and around the world to improve women’s health.
The fellowship design exemplifies the COE’s interdisciplinary and multi-campus approach. Along with the principal investigators, UC faculty from a range of disciplines will serve as fellowship mentors to provide an intensive, hands-on research experience to strengthen skills and develop careers focused on the intersection of human rights, empowerment and women’s health. The Center of Expertise awarded fellowships to three UCLA School of Law alumnae, Manisha Munshi, Emily Nagisa Keehn, and Lindsay Zwicker.
