Sarah Gardner awarded a 2015 Fight for Sight Summer Student Fellowship

Sarah Gardner, and undergraduate major in the Baker Laboratory, was awarded a 2015 Fight for Sight Summer Student Fellowship for her project entitled “Identifying mechanisms of protein targeting essential for the assembly of the photoreceptor ribbon synapse.”

Fight for Sight is a nonprofit organization that provides funding and acknowledgment to promising scientists early in their eye research careers, before they are eligible for government support from the National Institutes of Health. Sarah is joining an exclusive group of over 3,000 Fight for Sight dating back to 1947, many of whom have gone on to become outstanding leaders in eye and vision research and academic ophthalmology. Congratulations, Sarah!
