10 research scholarships have been awarded, supported by MedStar Health Research Institute and Georgetown University, via its Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) through the “CERSI Scholars” program. The 10 scholars are early career investigators who are committed to public health and are actively pursuing research, education or training in regulatory science.

CERSI Scholars receive mentoring from Georgetown University and MedStar Health faculty who are actively engaged in regulatory science research. The scholars also receive research stipends of up to $5,000, to be applied toward related research activities, such as consulting services to support ongoing projects, fees associated with peer-reviewed publication, or travel costs to conferences to present research results.
