Andres Manrique to intern with CDC for Emerging Infectious Disease RISE Fellowship
MHS in One Health student, Mr. Andres Manrique was awarded the James A. Ferguson Emerging Infectious Diseases RISE Fellowship. This fellowship offers students the opportunity to gain valuable public health skills in applied research through collaborations with the Kennedy Krieger Institute, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Manrique will work at the CDC in Atlanta, Georgia for three months this summer determining specific environmental risk factors that make individuals more susceptible to the Rabies virus. This is a great opportunity for him to gain experience in the professional world and supplement his current laboratory skills. Congratulations to Andres!
