Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program - Richard D. Lopez, 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.The goal of this program is to increase the number of minority medical faculty with a high likelihood of achieving senior academic positions in the nation's medical schools. Four-year fellowships are awarded 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. Under this program, Richard D. Lopez, M.D., began his fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine in 1995 and is transferring to Emory University. He has demonstrated satisfactory progress in his investigation of human and murine T lymphocytes with phenotypic and functional characteristics of natural killer cells. This award will complete his four-year fellowship.
