Two Winship fellows from Emory University School of Medicine's Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology and a fellow from the Department of Pediatrics are the recipients of this year's Nell W. and William Simpson Elkin Fellowship and Chester Rochfort Scholarship.
Sanjay Chandrasekaran, MD, and Andres Chang, MD, PhD, were each awarded a Nell W. and William Simpson Elkin Fellowship. Ashley Eason, MD, was awarded the Chester Rochfort Scholarship. The awards are given out annually to extraordinary trainees (MD or MD/PhD) engaged in cancer research or clinical care at Emory. Each award comes with an endowment of up to $35,000 to help cover salary, laboratory costs, and other research-related expenses, such as travel to conferences and meetings.
