Special Honor for Nick Mohrdieck’s St. Baldrick’s Summer Fellowship

Nicholas Mohrdieck

Nicholas Mohrdieck, rising senior at the UW, recently received a summer fellow award from the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for work in the laboratory of Christian Capitini, MD. As the result of a recent employee giving campaign at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, and a subsequent Foundation-wide vote of several summer fellows, the staff at St. Baldrick’s Foundation has chosen to fund the award. Furthermore, staff bestowed a special honor on his summer fellow award, naming him the “St. Baldrick’s Staff Giving Campaign Summer Fellow” to commemorate this honor. Avis Matsuda, St. Baldrick’s Foundation Director of Philanthropy, wrote about Nick, “You were a hands down favorite—thank you so much for your commitment to raising funds and awareness of the need for research funding for kids with cancer especially during this unprecedented time. Your event is a huge success and we are so grateful for your support!”
