Alisha Griffin Awarded Rackham Merit Fellowship

Alisha Griffin
One of St. Croix’s own, Alisha Griffin, was awarded a prestigious fellowship, which will fund her throughout her Ph.D. graduate career as a student in biological sciences, specializing in pharmacology. The Rackham Graduate School at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, has awarded 50 students out of a possible 1300 with the Rackham Merit Fellowship from all graduate disciplines. This fellowship is highly competitive and is awarded to students based on undergraduate scholastic awards and achievements, GPA, GRE score, community service, recommendations and essays.

Griffin graduated from the St. Croix Educational Complex in 2005 and went on to receive her Bachelor of Science degree (biology major, chemistry minor) from Seton Hall University in 2009. After completing her degree, she attended the University of Michigan post-baccalaureate program in 2010, which aims to train students for successful graduate careers.
During her year long program, she worked in Dr. Paul Hollenberg’s pharmacology lab on Cytochrome P450 metabolism and decided to stay and complete her doctoral degree there. As a current pre-doctoral student, Griffin is interested in drug metabolism and drug design in the pharmacology field.
