Wednesday, April 24, 2019
The University's Furth Fund, established through the generosity of Valerie and Frank Furth, provides early career scientists with $12,500 in research funds which can be used to purchase equipment, engage graduate students or postdocs or support other research-related needs.
This year, two of the three recipients are URMC faculty—Martina Anto-Ocrah, assistant professor of Emergency Medicine.
Anto-Ocrah has been a member of URMC faculty since July 2018 as assistant professor of Emergency Medicine and of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
“Martina's unique interests in Global Emergency Medicine particularly in under-resourced settings, coupled with her passion and dedication to research, make her an exceptional addition to our faculty,” said Michael F. Kamali, M.D., chair of Emergency Medicine.
