SURE Scholarship

Sara Schellbach

Congratulations to Sara Schellbach who won the SURE Scholarship from the Wayne State University. This summer undergraduate research experience offered by the School of Medicine to US citizens with GPA >3.0 was very competitive and among more than 100 applicants only ~25% were awarded with the SURE Scholarship.
Sara will work under the supervision of Dr. Carolyn Harris at Children’s Hospital. Dr. Harris is head of the new Hydrocephalus laboratory at Children’s Hospital and is currently working on ways to improve coatings of the shunts for Hydrocephalus patients. During the summer, Sara will use her skills in scanning electron microscopy, contact angle measurements and other surface/coating characterization methods to explore the causes for shunts’ coatings failures.
