Humboldt professors Jacob Varkey and Amy Sprowles have received over $3 million from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine’s (CIRM) Bridges 2.0 Training Program. The funding will support Humboldt’s CIRM program, which provides stem cell training and paid research internships for Humboldt students. Of the 48 students who have completed internships through the CIRM program, 35 percent are first-generation students and nearly a quarter are from communities underrepresented in science.
