INTERACTION FELLOWS & SCHOLARS PROGRAM
Since the InterACTION Fellows and Scholars Program began in 2017, it has supported 5 faculty, 8 PhD and DNP students, 11 graduate students and 4 recent graduates from both Peru and the U.S. in a cross-country interdisciplinary exchange to work on collaborative cross-cutting research projects that support the InterACTION Labs: Iquitos program. Fellows and Scholars represent a wide range of disciplines including nursing, landscape architecture, bioinformatics, microbiology, bioengineering, One Health, anthropology, architecture, medicine, and environmental engineering.
The InterACTION Fellows and Scholars program is made possible by support from the Centro de Investigaciones Tecnológicas Biomédicas y Medioambientales (CITBM), the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM), the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund, the Universidad Nacional de la Amazonia Peruana (UNAP), the University of Washington Global Innovation Fund, UW Center for Global Health Nursing and the UW Departments of Landscape Architecture and Global Health. The Program also connects with the GHIP, NIH Fogarty Fellowship and CGHN Scholars Programs.
