UNC hematology fellow Ming Lim, MBBChir, receives 2013 ASH Research Training Award for Fellows

Dr. Lim has been chosen as a recipient of the ASH Training Award for Fellows for the period July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014. The title of her project is "'Contribution of erythrocytes to thrombin generation in sickle cell disease."

In creating the Training Award, the American Society of Hematology made a commitment to enhance the training of fellows by designing the award to provide funding to fellows who need protected time to perform research, thus encouraging junior researchers to stay in the academic field of hematology.  The award is intended to be used as the primary salary support for the applicant.
