The Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE) program recently announced Dr. Marcy Osgood, assistant dean for Medical Science Education and associate professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, was selected as one of 40 Leadership Fellows. This prestigious honor recognizes Osgood's scholarship and leadership in science education. She is one of 40 fellows who will identify and consider how to eliminate barriers to the systemic changes that are needed to improve undergraduate life sciences education.

The PULSE program is a joint initiative of the National Science Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the National Institutes of Health. The effort is supporting a yearlong program in which Vision and Change Leadership Fellows consider and then recommend models for improving undergraduate life sciences education.
