NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Individual Predoctoral M.D./Ph.D. Fellowship (2015-2020)

Each NIH Institute offers Kirschstein National Research Service Award Individual Predoctoral M.D./Ph.D. Fellowships (F30 NSRA) intended to enhance the integrated research and clinical training of promising predoctoral students who are matriculated in a combined M.D./Ph.D. training program and who intend careers as physician-scientists.  Michael Price, an M.D./Ph.D. Scholar at UNMC, has been awarded a 5-year F30 NSRA from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, for his project entitled “Alcohol drives S-nitrosylation to impair airway mucociliary clearance.” Michael’s research, which focuses on elucidating molecular mechanisms controlling the motility of airway cilia, also resulted in an Outstanding Poster Presentation Award at the 2015 Gordon Conference on Cilia, Mucus & Mucociliary Interactions. Michael completed his dissertation research under the tutelage of Joseph H. Sisson, M.D., receiving the Ph.D. degree in May 2018.  Michael will subsequently complete the final two years of his medical school training at UNMC.
