Dr. Dhumal, a study coordinator, and Dr. Nevrekar, a research clinician coordinator at Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College (BJGMC) – Johns Hopkins University Clinical Research Site in Pune, India, formed a mentor-mentee cohort with Dr. Nishi Suryavanshi as their mentor to further the PEER program’s goal of making the STEM field a safer space for women.
The PEER Award is supporting two studies, which are being conducted under the mentorship of Dr. Suryavanshi, Clinical Research Site Coordinator and Deputy Director for the Indo-JHU research partnership at Pune. Dr. Dhumal and Dr. Nevrekar submitted individual pilot projects and applied for the $10,000 seed grant funding as part of the program. Both of the research projects were reviewed and selected by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
