In the summer of 2009, funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) enabled NIDCD-funded researchers to support research experiences for high school and college students. Dr. Nadine Connor, Research Director in the Division of Otolaryngology, was the recipient of funding from the ARRA.

With this grant, Dr. Connor and Dr. Michelle Ciucci provided top-notch research mentoring to Jaime Shier, an undergraduate student, on a project titled “Aging, Exercise and Mechanisms of Altered Tongue Function.” Dr. Connor and Jaime are featured on the National Institutes Deafness and Other Communication Disorders Web site discussing their lab experience..
