On the next episode of High-Tech Sunday, the hosts sit down with Korie Grayson, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan’s department of chemical engineering. Her research is focused on the evaluation of novel nano- and microparticles for therapy in neutrophilic, acute inflammatory disease, and cancer. Join us on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 3 PM EST for episode #14 of High-Tech Sunday.
Korie is a passionate diversity advocate in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). She earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry at Norfolk State University in 2012, and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Cornell University.
To date, Korie has received several awards, including the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (2014), Alfred P. Sloan Diversity Fellowship (2014), Robert Mozia Graduate Distinguished Service Award (2016), and Graduate Student of the Year (2017) from the Diversity Programs in Engineering Department at Cornell University.
