JHMI Graduate Student Jodi Chapman awarded scholarship for collaboration with Karchin Lab


Jodi Chapman (Art as Applied to Medicine graduate student at JHMI) was awarded the 2011 Alan W. Cole Scholarship, the top scholarship prize from the Vesalius Trust, for her work collaborating with the Karchin Lab on an educational computer video game to teach protein evolution.

The Vesalius Trust for Visual Communication in the Health Sciences was incorporated as a non-profit public foundation in 1988. Established under the direction of the Board of Governors of the Association of Medical Illustrators, a professional organization of medically-trained visual communicators, the Trust strives to develop and support education and research programs in the field of health science communications.

Grant money is made available each year by the Vesalius Trust to fully or partially fund meritorious student research projects/theses. The applicants are judged on background, education and project concept, design and production plan. The top scholarship award is named in honor of Alan W. Cole, beloved and respected medical illustrator and long-time member of the Association of Medical Illustrators.
