May 17, 2018

Congrats to Nina Singh who is a renewal recipient of the prestigious Astronaut Scholarship! As part of the honor, Singh, a rising senior majoring in biomedical engineering, will receive up to a $10,000 award, an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the Innovators Gala, mentoring by Astronaut Scholar alumni, and membership in the Astronaut Scholar Honor Society.

In her research, Nina has employed innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to understanding drug interactions and ciliary movement. Common among her research interests is her integration of perspectives from different fields to effectively address biological problems. Nina has co-designed and led several research projects, published extensively, received numerous competitive university fellowships, and mentored new lab members. This summer, she plans to collaborate with clinicians to apply for ciliary movement research to improving the diagnosis of ciliary disorders. In the future, Nina intends to pursue medical school and continue her research to create and apply longer-lasting and more effective drug regimens for cancer patients.

Excellent work, Nina! Way to go!!
