Honors for Laura Fischer and Shafqat Khan

Two of our lab members were recognized with awards at the Department of Developmental Biology’s Annual Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 13th, 2022. The honorees are:

  • Laura Fischer was recognized with the 2022-2023 Douglas Covey Graduate Fellowship. This fellowship is made possible by scientific discoveries by Professor Covey and his trainees in the area of neurosteroid medicinal chemistry that led to development of clinically valuable anti-convulsants, anti-depressants, and surgical sedatives.  

  • Shafqat Khan received a Postdoctoral Fellow Seed of Independence Research Grant. The intent for these grants is to provide support for postdoctoral fellows who are developing an innovative project that could provide a platform for their independent research career. 

Congratulations to Laura and Shafqat and looking forward to exciting discoveries!
