Kyle Garton '94 named as one of first Allen Scholars

The Paul G. Allen Foundation for Medical Research has given a $1 million grant to support the University of Washington's Medical Scientist Training Program and Kyle Garton '94 was selected as one of the first Allen Scholars. Students in the MST program complete an 8-year combined M.D./Ph.D. degree program. MST scholars are selected for their history of academic excellence and their potential as future physician scientists. Dr. Mary-Claire King '67, a professor at University of Washington School of Medicine, first approached the foundation with the suggestion it support the MST program. King majored in mathematics and Garton in biochemistry at Carleton.
