Joseph Chambers, graduate student of biological sciences, has been awarded a fellowship from Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics for his research in the lab of Rebecca Wingert, Elizabeth and Michael Gallagher Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, studying the genetics of polycystic kidney disease.

In discussing the fellowships, Paul Bohn, Arthur J. Schmitt Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and director of Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics, said, “There are many ways to foster research across campus, but these summer fellowships allow for the acceleration of student and faculty research, while supporting new and bold ideas with the potential for real-world impact.”

Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics is a community of affiliated researchers who tackle a wide range of biomedical and environmental health problems – such as sepsis, cancer, influenza, wound healing, drug addiction, mosquito-borne diseases, autism, cystic fibrosis, air pollution, invasive species and many others – through innovation, invention and real-world applications.
