Alison Kraemer Receives Student Research Award

Alison Kraemer, a medical student in the department's Scholarly Concentrations course, has been awarded a William B. Bean Student Research Award, given by the American Osler Society. Her paper for the course, on stem-cell research at Harvard during the Bush-era moratorium, used extensive oral-history interviews, as well as close reading of the scientific literature, government documents, and the secondary literature. She will receive a cash prize and is invited to present at the AOS meeting in Atlanta next spring.
