Million dollar grant by the Paul G. Allen Foundation for Medical Research to University of Washington medical scientist program

th honors in biochemistry from Carleton College in Northfield, MN. He subsequently worked for a year at the UW as a research technician in the Department of Anesthesiology before entering medical school. Gartons current research project involves characterizing the functions of a novel gene family that may play a role in the development of lesions in atherosclerosis. He hopes to complete an anatomic pathology residency. Gartons wife Rachel is currently a resident in dermatology.

Adam Lauring graduated from Yale in 1994, with degrees in biology and the history of science. Lauring just completed his graduate work in the molecular and cellular biology program and returned to medical school this fall, as part of the MD/Ph.D. program. For his thesis, Lauring studied the pathogenesis of feline leukemia virus, which serves as a model system for both human cancer and AIDS. Knowledge of how the virus causes feline leukemia could provide clues to how HIV, a similar virus, causes human AIDS. Lauring is from St. Petersburg, FL.

Ed Miao is in his final year of his Ph.D. thesis research in microbiology. The University of California graduate is focusing on Salmonella, which causes typhoid fever. He hypothesized that proteins synthesized by the bacteria alters human cells so they cannot fight off the bacteria. Miao is married to Cheryl Carlson, a fellow student in the MD/Ph.D. program. Miaos parents live in Bend, Oregon.

Premal Patel, a graduate of Rutgers University, has focused his research on DNA polymerases, the enzymes that synthesize the genetic material in human cells. The former Fairlawn, New Jersey, resident has established large libraries of mutant enzymes that carry out different biological functions for use in the biotechnology industry. Patel plans a career in drug discovery and cancer research. He has been honored by the Puget Sound Blood Center for his active role in minority bone marrow recruitment.
