I was just informed that Katie received an ‘Opportunities in Undergraduate Research in the College of Liberal Arts (OURCLA)’ Scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year.  Katie will continue to investigate the functional and structural connectivity of the hypothalamus, a region of the brain that is notoriously difficult to image, but super important in maintaining the body’s homeostasis.  This scholarship comes with a stipend and some support to offset the costs of her research project.  Katie will be entering her senior year this Fall, and hopes to attend an M.D./Ph.D. program.  Congratulations, Katie!
