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.Under this project, John Kevin Tucker, M.D., will conduct research entitled, "Insulin Regulation of Amiloride-Sensitive Sodium Channels." This grant is consistent with the Foundation's continuing efforts to improve the number and quality of minority physicians. 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 United States.
