We highlight the research of Professor Hassan Ashktorab, Department of Medicine and Director of Microarray in the Howard University Cancer, on detection of gastrointestinal polyp and cancer detection.
We also announce several 150th Anniversary Events sponsored by the Preparing Future Faculty Program and provide information on the new Ph.D. program in Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies, which will be offered beginning in the fall 2017.
Finally, we announce the following dates: September 14, 2017, the date of the Howard University TEDx 2017 and Howard University Research Week, April 10-14.
