The McCoy Family Fellowship for Women in Chemistry and Business was established through a generous gift by Sherilyn McCoy and Terence McCoy to help build the pipeline of women scientists with business acumen and to expose women Ph.D. students in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology to business as they pursue their research.
Manasi Pethe, B. Pharm. (2011), University of Mumbai began pursuing her Ph.D. in Chemistry and Chemical Biology in Dr. Sagar Khare’s laboratory focusing on modeling the biophysical basis of protease specificity. With the support of the McCoy Family fellowship, Manasi plans to obtain her Ph.D. from Rutgers, in 2017 and use the modeling acumen she gains to further the understanding of therapeutically relevant biochemical systems.
