Pedrotty and Miller win WiSE OWL Awards

May 1, 2007

Two of three winners of the first WiSE OWL Award are from Pratt. The winners are Dawn Pedrotty, a graduate student in Professor Nenad Bursac’s lab in BME; Molly Miller, a graduate student in Professor Anne Lazarides’ lab in MEMS; and Audrey Chang, a graduate student in the biology department. The WiSE OWL Awards are sponsored by Women in Science and Engineering and co-sponsored by Graduate Student Affairs. They honor female graduate students, post-docs and laboratory technicians who have contributed not only to the scientific community through research excellence, but also to the Duke and the Durham communities through exemplary leadership and mentoring. There were 49 nominees from political science, pharmacology, environment, engineering, chemistry, math, physics, psychology and biology.
