Sheri Mizumori received an Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. She was one of four University of Washington faculty who were honored at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium held on May 15, 2009.
From the UW Undergraduate Research Symposium Page:
"Sheri should receive this award because she has supplied the perfect amount of guidance balanced with the freedom to explore this project and make it my own. I have been able to be involved in almost every step of the study from researching background information to putting together the results and drawing conclusions. I didn't just learn how to run the animals and collect data; I was introduced to the process of conducting an experiment. I got a taste of what it would be like to be a graduate student. I am so grateful that Sheri allowed me to play such a large role in this study and I have benefited greatly from it. Also, it was mainly due to her encouragement that I received the Mary Gates scholarship. Sheri and the experiences I have gained under her have shaped my undergraduate education in wonderful ways."
