2 seniors win med tech scholarships

Claire Zelinskas and Apoorva Srivastava
3:52 p.m., April 12, 2005--Two seniors majoring in medical technology, Claire M. Zelinskas and Apoorva Srivastava, have been awarded Dade Behring-Emil von Behring scholarships for $2,500 each. The two students were among the 34 selected in the United States out of 200 appplicants.

Zelinskas has been a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Scholar for two summers, carrying out cancer research for Mary Ann McLane, associate professor of medical technology. She said she plans to attend medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., following graduation.

Srivastava, who is from India, also has been a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Scholar working for McLane. He is a board member of the Indian Student Association and has taken an active role in their annual cultural shows, acting as emcee for this year’s production. He said he will be working as a medical technologist at Christiana Care Health System after graduation and plans to attend medical school a few years later.

The scholarship program was created by Dade Behring to help fund the education of laboratory professionals who assist physicians and their patients with diagnostic testing support.
