Labib Rouhana, a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Phil Newmark, has been awarded the prestigious Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Labib was 1 of 22 postdoctoral fellows selected by the National Research Council Fellowships Office during the 2012 competition. For the past 50 years the Ford Foundation Fellowship program has increased the diversity of the nation's college and university faculty by supporting promising young candidates.

In addition, Labib recently was selected to participate in the Summer Leadership Institute (SLI). The SLI provides premier training to scientists from underrepresented backgrounds who wish to increase their ability to succeed as institutional and community leaders. This program hosted ten postdoctoral fellows, ten early career scientists, and ten mid-career professionals selected from a pool of approximately 150 participants. The SLI was developed by the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
