The Male Contraceptive Initiative’s Youth Advisory Board recently selected four undergraduate students for awards to fund research in male contraception. The Parsemus Foundation is proud to support these awards to encourage more young scholars to pursue studies in improving  reproductive health. The 2021-22 awardees are: Malena Gabri (University of Buenos Aires), Kenitimi Bikikoro (Niger Delta University), Aryani Pallerla (University of North Carolina Chapel Hill), and Madeline Mahoney (University of Chicago). The research projects include assessing perceptions of male contraceptive options, developing an implantable male contraceptive, and identification of vaccine candidates for male contraception. The Male Contraceptive Initiative’s blog provides information on the undergraduate research award program and details on this year’s award winners. Congratulations!
