Mariana Wins 2 Fellowships

Heartiest Congratulations to Mariana

Dr. Mariana Cárdenas-González received postdoctoral fellowship grants from Harvard-Mexico Foundation and from Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). Mariana will investigate the sensitivity and specificity of urinary proteins and microRNAs as biomarkers for early detection of kidney toxicity in humans. Her proposal is titled “Screening for early kidney injury in Mexican children living in high-risk scenarios”. 

The Harvard-Mexico Foundation is "Established to ensure that all Mexicans admitted to the graduate and post-graduate programs at Harvard University obtain the financial resources necessary to pursue their dreams". The CONACYT Postdoctoral Abroad Research Fellowship Program is a "response to the search for new options for young Ph.D. graduates to continue their education at the international level where researchers can collaborate with researchers of the highest international level..."

We sincerely appreciate the fellowship support from the two institutions that allows Mariana to continue pursuing her scientific interests.
