This year, our 25th anniversary celebration year, also includes celebrating the success of our scholars. If our work empowers one individual to pursue a career in research, then we are just a step closer to ensuring women’s well-being and family health. We’d like to acknowledge Dr. Thinzar Helmi Lwin.
“The Howell research scholarship fueled my interest in science and cancer biology. It led me to great mentors who guided me into the medical field during my time at UCSD. I have since finished medical school in New York and am now a surgical resident training at Mt Sinai Beth Israel in NY. I am very appreciative of the Howell Foundation for giving me the opportunity to get started in biomedical research which helped me to get where I am today!”
