SHBT Student Nicole Black was recently awarded a 2020 Baxter Young Investigator Award. Nicole’s research in Biomimetic and Biodegradable 3D-Printed Tympanic Membrane Grafts (PhonoGraft) earned her First-Tier award.
Baxter's Young Investigator Awards seek to stimulate and reward research applicable to the development of therapies and medical products that save and sustain patients' lives. We invite current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to submit descriptions of ongoing research. The Baxter Young Investigator Awards program consists of two tiers: first-tier awards include a $3,000 cash prize and an onsite visit to Baxter to present the award-winning research; second-tier awards receive a $500 cash prize. Prizes are granted based on merit of the research.
