Duke University Honors Jo Rae Wright

Duke University has established two fellowships to honor Jo Rae Wright, who stepped down as dean of the university’s graduate school in October. Dr. Wright, a professor of cell biology, medicine, and pediatrics at Duke, explained that she decided to step down as dean due to her continuing battle with breast cancer.

The Jo Rae Wright Fellowship for Outstanding Women in Science will be awarded to two women each year. One will be for a Ph.D. student in the biomedical sciences and one will be earmarked for a Ph.D. student in the natural sciences.
