Thanks from Alum Deborah Kilpatrick, CEO Evidation Health

The work you (ARCS Foundation Atlanta members) have all done is tremendous, and I am so proud to be a part of that legacy.  I hope that my work is making you all feel that there has been a good return on your investment.

Thanks from Scholar Kira Newman

"I can only begin to express how grateful I am for the freedom to pursue an independent line of research without having to worry about how I will pay for the necessary lab supplies or training. This award is allowing me to answer broader and more valuable questions than I had previously thought possible... Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and belief in my potential as a scientist."

Thanks from Alum Tim Sampson, Postdoctoral Scholar at Caltech

I am immensely grateful to the ARCS Foundation and Turner Enterprises for making my award possible. I am honored to have been part of the talented and promising group of young researchers from the Atlanta-area!
