My background is in basic laboratory research. I worked with Craig Bassing, PhD, in the department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine for almost a decade. After recently completing the Research Administration Fellowship through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, I am now working in the Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) in this important role as Research Navigator.

Christoph Seiler, PhD, received a Foerderer Fund for Excellence award at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in 2015 to study this mechanism. German-born Dr. Seiler pointed out that “Foerderer,” in German, means supporter or sponsor. Its name is therefore apt, because the internal award program spurs research projects that need a bit of support to generate pilot data that can later help those projects stand out in the competitive awarding of external funds.

As the weather turns warm, children and adults of all ages naturally gravitate toward outdoor activities. Many dream of the start of beach season and lazy days basking in the sun.
