The Randall-Clem Fund was established by the Department of Microbiology to honor its first two chairmen, Dr. Charles Randall (chair 1955-77) and Dr. L. William Clem (chair 1978-2004). Both Drs. Randall and Clem were nationally and internationally respected scientists who provided exceptional guidance to the many graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty associated with the department. They each developed strong ties with their students and contributed greatly to their subsequent scientific careers. The Randall-Clem Fund is designed to provide financial support to help graduate students presently enrolled in the microbiology graduate program. Funds can be used for a wide spectrum of activities directly related to graduate education, including emergency stipend support, student travel for presentations at scientific meetings, personal financial emergencies, the purchase of books, journals or other educational materials, and other program-specific expenses. Since its inception, the fund has been supported by contributions from faculty and alumni of the microbiology graduate program, and others interested in supporting graduate students and their research at UMMC. If you are interested in contributing to the Randall-Clem Fund, contact the UMMC Office of Development.
