Ph.D. candidate Alan Pacheco Wins HHMI Gilliam Fellowship

Alan Pacheco (ENG’15,’22), a PhD candidate in the Boston University Graduate Program in Bioinformatics, is the first BU graduate to receive a prestigious Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study. The award provides support for three years of study toward a PhD in the life sciences for students underrepresented in the sciences and is made on the basis of a student’s promise as a scientific investigator, potential for leadership in the scientific community, and commitment to diversity. The fellowships are named for the late James H. Gilliam Jr., a charter trustee of the HHMI who spent his life fostering excellence and diversity in education and science.
