US recognition for Indo-Muslim student

Jameel Zafar IqbalJameel Zafar Iqbal received a Bachelor of Science degree with distinction from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville in May 2001. He has been awarded a scholarship under NIH's Medical Scientist Training Program to pursue a 7-year combined degree (M.D.-Ph.D.) study at the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

This highly meritorious award includes the full cost of tuition and a stipend of about $25,000 per year with a comprehensive medical insurance for the entire study period. Jameel intends to explore the development of new drugs to alleviate suffering faced by patients with bone cancer problems. He has already actively participated in this research area during a summer internship at the Mt. Sinai Medical School last year. His contribution has resulted in publication of two peer-reviewed research papers in international journals. He has also authored an exhaustive chapter in the area of molecular pharmacology soon to be published in a book on osteoporosis.

A major source of Jameel's academic success has been his devotion to biomedical science. He has spent all his summer vacations working in research laboratories. Immediately after his graduation from high school, he started working in the Neuroscience Department of the Johns Hopkins University on a research project dealing with the role of programmed cell death in Parkinson's Disease. In the summer of the following year, he received a NIH scholarship to work at the Diabetes Branch of the NIDDK, NIH exploring how insulin resistance is developed in non-obese animals. He has created a Webpage dedicated to lipoatrophic diabetes at  combining both clinical and research aspects of the disease.

He was also involved in the discovery of a growth hormone receptor in prostate cancer cells while working at the University of Virginia Cancer Center.

Some of Jameel's other accomplishments during the past few years include: a membership in the National Honor Society, ICTM Indiana State Math Scholar; National Math League 5th place finish for Geometry; American Mathematics Competitions Certificate of Distinction; State Finalist Award for Academic Math Competition; participant in the national ARML Math competition (Indiana Teams): Site award, Most Improved team, Super Relay Champions; Hi Q Academic Competitions Certificate of Distinction; Score of Five on the Advanced Placement US History Exam; High Honor Roll (4.0 G.P.A.) in high school, valedictorian in his high school class of over 350 students.

His extracurricular activities and hobbies include Life Writer for the University of Virginia newspaper, Cavalier Daily; Roundtable Philosophy Group, Environmental Students Organization, Asian Students Union, La Sociedad Hispanica Habitat for Humanity, Circle K, SEA Environmental Group, Hi-Y (a service club); Math Team-Captain; Class Council; Leadership Wayne County (a leadership program); The State of Indiana Math Team (ARML); Reid Hospital Exploratory Group; Logos Gifted and Talented; Election Poll Sitter; Indiana Senate Page. His other hobbies include soccer, violin, painting Picasso works replicas, calculator programming, and teaching calculator programming to underprivileged city kids.

Jameel has strong ties with academics; his grandfather, Professor Dr. Shujaat Ali Sandilvi served the University of Lucknow and distinguished himself as an Urdu writer and critic. His father, Professor Zafar Iqbal, graduated from the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences New Delhi before moving to the US in 1973, where he is working for the US Department of Veterans' Health Affairs in Washington.
