Sam Sudar Selected for Gates Cambridge Scholarship
Mar 18th, 2009
Honors student Sam Sudar was recently selected for the prestigious Gates Cambridge Scholarship, covering the full cost of graduate-level study at Cambridge University.
"An honors student, Mary Gates Scholar, and leader in the Community of Mary Gates Scholars, Sudar is pursuing majors in neurobiology, philosophy, and English and a minor in music. As a research assistant in Professor Tom Reh's laboratory in the Department of Biological Structure, Sudar's work supports the lab's aim of harnessing the regenerative potential of the mammalian retina. Sudar hopes to build on his undergraduate research experiences to study treatments that regenerate the central nervous system after damage. At Cambridge, he plans to study the regeneration of the spinal cord, with the goal of reversing paralysis due to injury."
