Pelotonia Fellowship Committee


The Pelotonia Fellowship Committee is chaired by Gustavo Leone, PhD, and co-chaired by Jan Kiecolt-Glaser, PhD. The committee is made up of some of Ohio State’s most well-known cancer researchers.

This committee meets several times per year to review all applications and make all major program decisions. They represent departments as diverse as Molecular Genetics and Internal Medicine to Psychology and Human Nutrition. Larry Mathes, PhD, moderates our postdoctoral reviews, assuring the reviews are fair, rigorous and unbiased.
