Ross Boyce, MD, MSc, assistant professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases, has received a Caregivers at Carolina Research Award.
Boyce’s research focuses on the epidemiology of vector-borne diseases (i.e. malaria) in rural sub-Saharan Africa as well as the development of appropriate diagnosis and management tools.
The goal of the Caregivers at Carolina (“Caregivers”) program is to support the retention of junior physician scientists facing substantial caregiving responsibilities by developing not only new sustainable initiatives but also leveraging and integrating existing programs, resources, and opportunities. The program provides supplemental research funding to physician scientists to support a research technician or buy-out of one day of clinical time.
