Rutgers School of Public Health Instructor, Dr. Stephanie Shiau, is receiving an Early Career Award from the Thrasher Research Fund. The award is given bi-annually in the Spring and Fall to investigators who have demonstrated a commitment to a research career that will find solutions to children’s health problems.
Thrasher Research Fund recognizes that finding funding can be difficult for young investigators in pediatric research. The goal of this award is to help alleviate that difficulty and encourage the development of medical research in child health. One goal of the award is to recognize and assist investigators that show great potential to impact fields of children’s health through medical research. Awardees must demonstrate the potential positive results that would significantly improve child health, address an important research gap, and be widely translatable. Dr. Shiau will use the award to further her research on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
“I am honored to be awarded the Thrasher Research Fund Early Career Award,” said Dr. Shiau. “This award will assist in my research on growth and infectious morbidity in infants and children exposed to HIV and its treatment over the life course.”Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on September 27
