Timothy Choi, MS, Receives One Year Fellowship

Congrats to Timothy Choi, MS, on his receipt of a one-year fellowship of ~ $34,000 funded in part by the UW-Institute for Clinical & Translational Research (ICTR) and the Shapiro Medical Student Research Program.  Under the mentorship of James Gern, MD, he aims to characterize the mechanisms that regulate the severity of RV-C infections and illnesses via his project, “Effects of age on airway epithelial cell response to rhinovirus A and C infections”. During this fellowship, Tim will have the opportunity to train with laboratory personnel, work with biostatisticians on database construction and data analysis, present research findings at a national conference, and prepare a manuscript to be submitted for publication.
