Ella Shoup, of Falls Church, and Nebil Nuradin, of Washington, D.C. and formerly of Falls Church, are among students who have received research grants from the University of Virginia’s Center for Global Health to pursue projects around the world this summer.

Shoup, a third-year political and social thought major, will research creating a virtual support network for men living with HIV in South Africa. Nuradin, a first-year medical student, will assess the effectiveness of simulation workshops in teaching surgery in low- to middle-income countries, using hospital records in Rwanda, where the workshops started in 2012.
