We are pleased to announce that Nicole Rockey, a PhD student with Prof. Lut Raskin, is a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). As the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, the GRFP has a long history of selecting recipients who achieve high levels of success in their future academic and professional careers. The reputation of the GRFP follows recipients and often helps them become life-long leaders that contribute significantly to both scientific innovation and teaching. We thus have high expectations for Nicole and are proud to have her in our team. Congratulations, Nicole !
