Congratulations to Kayla Rasmussen, an undergraduate student majoring in genetics, who was recently awarded a 2016 John Emory Morris UWCCC Undergraduate Summer Research Award. She has been working in the research lab of Paul Sondel, MD, PhD, for the past year, and this award supports a full-time summer research experience for her in a laboratory of a member of the faculty of the UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC). The award is given annually to an undergraduate student who shows academic promise, and whose career goal is research and/or medical practice in cancer or other disease processes. The Donor's goals are to provide this opportunity for undergraduates, and also to develop new generations of investigators focused on the prevention and cure of cancers or other disease processes. This $5,000 award will be under the mentorship of Alexander Rakhmelivich, MD, PhD in the Sondel Lab.
