Mecky Pohlschröder awarded the Dean’s Award for Mentorship of Undergraduate Research


This award, which recognizes faculty members who have excelled in nurturing undergraduate students’ desires and abilities to conduct meaningful research, goes to Mechthild “Mecky” Pohlschröder, a professor of biology. For many years, Dr. Pohlschröder has worked to enhance participation of a diverse group of students in biology and STEM, and she recently founded the Penn Freshmen Exposure to Research in Biological Sciences (PennFERBS) program, which aims to achieve educational equity through the integration, establishment, and retention of traditionally underrepresented students in lab research.
