- PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS
- CURRENT STUDENTS
Since its inception in 2001, more than 100 students have earned their doctoral degrees through the NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars (OxCam) Program and have moved on to make exciting scientific discoveries in their research.
The numerous successes and achievements of our alumni has made it challenging to maintain a current database. We are striving to cultivate the relationships with our former students and take great pride in observing the development of these scholars’ careers. We look forward to providing constant updates on the remarkable accomplishments of our alumni and hope that their continued engagement will provide networking opportunities for our current students.
