Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program - Felipe Samaniego, M.D.

The Foundation's Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program was designed to provide four-year postdoctoral research awards offered to historically disadvantaged physicians who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine, to improving the health of underserved populations, and to furthering the understanding and elimination of health disparities.Four-year fellowships are awarded in two phases to candidates selected on a competitive basis for research under the supervision of a senior faculty member at an academic center noted for the training of young faculty. Preparation of minority faculty to assume leadership roles in academic medicine should contribute to a continuing commitment in the nation's medical schools to increase the number of minority physicians in the U.S. Dr. Samaniego began his fellowship July 1988 and has demonstrated satisfactory progress in his investigation of cytogenetics and gene amplification of germ cell tumors. As of February 1990, Dr. Samaniego began research in the role of RNA binding proteins in post transcriptional gene regulation at the National Institutes of Health (The Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences) with Richard D. Klausner, M.D., as his mentor. This award represents the balance of the initial award together with the final award.
