At Convocation today, Aislynn was acknowledged as the recipient of the 2009 Armand J. Guarino Award for Academic Excellence in Master of Science Studies. As Aislynn described in her acceptance speech, her project on childhood brain tumors (medulloblastoma) was a truly multi-disciplinary endeavor. Aislynn's strong communication skills and ability to bring in collaborators across diverse disciplines made her project possible. The second of two publications from her work will be submitted this coming week. We are so proud of what Aislynn has achieved. We wish her good luck and great success in Chicago!
