Dr. Nancy Magnuson Immunology Scholarship

Nancy S. Magnuson - 2010

The Dr. Nancy Magnuson Immunology Scholarship was established to support students pursuing a degree in immunology and to honor one of the college's most esteemed faculty members.

A pioneer in research, Nancy Magnuson was one of the first to identify how the PIM-1 gene, a proto-oncogene, contributes to cancer development. Over nearly 30 years, she also worked with dozens of students, undergraduate and graduate, to help them achieve their academic and professional goals. Magnuson earned her doctorate from WSU in 1978 and joined the WSU faculty as a research assistant professor in 1981. She also served as the director of the NSF funded ADVANCE grant program that promotes the careers of women in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines in academia. In 2010, Magnuson was selected by her peers to give the WSU Distinguished Faculty Address, one of the University’s highest honors recognizing the achievements of one faculty member in research, scholarship, and teaching.

Please join us in celebrating Dr. Magnuson’s lifetime of achievement by becoming a part of this effort.
