Former Utah State Koch Scholar Receives Select Medical Research Award

William Israelson, a cancer researcher at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and recent recipient of an Early Independence Award from the National Institute of Health, participated in a Koch Scholars reading group while an undergraduate student at Utah State. Israelson recalls his time in the program as, “One of the very best experiences I had at USU. I read books I normally wouldn’t have read and I had the opportunity to consider and discuss big ideas with a group of very intelligent people from diverse backgrounds.”
