Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has a bright history of training the next generation of leaders in pediatric research. Though we celebrate our scientists in many different ways throughout the year, the Distinguished Research Trainee Award is a unique opportunity to recognize exceptional CHOP Research trainees across diverse and impactful fields. Every year, mentors nominate a researcher-in-training of their choice by highlighting that trainee’s strengths, skill sets, and successes. This year, the Research Trainee Advisory Committee at CHOP selected four Distinguished Research Trainees who are poised to advance research and treatment in their respective fields: Laura Grafe, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Stress Neurobiology at CHOP; Danielle Mor, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University; Nathan Roy, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at CHOP; and Sarah Wood, MD, an attending physician in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at CHOP. We invite you to learn more about these scientists’ accomplishments and accolades by clicking through our slideshow. Congratulations to all four recipients!
