Tanya Evans, a predoctoral trainee in the Department of Bioengineering at CU Denver, is a recipient of a National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Graduate Research Supplement. Tanya is receiving the award as part of a parent grant with her advisor, Dr. Robin Shandas.
The research supplements are available to students of active National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grantees. The supplements were designed to increase diversity in health-related research by supporting and recruiting students from underrepresented groups.
The NHLBI provides research, training, and education to promote the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases. The NHLBI has a history of fostering training and mentoring of emerging scientists. It has forged robust partnerships with private and public organizations, including academia, industry, and other government agencies.
This research supplement will continue to support Tanya in her work to improve ultrasound imaging techniques for accurate assessment of cardiovascular functioning.
