Graduate Assistant Chris Samoray receives award from Beckman Initiative for Macular Research

Chris Samoray, a graduate student and graduate assistant in Journalism and Electronic Media, has received a national award from the Beckman Initiative for Macular Research. He will travel–all expenses paid–to the organization’s annual conference in Irvine, California in January 2013 to write stories about research breakthroughs in treating macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness, under the mentorship of Barbara Culliton, a distinguished medical writer. Only seven students nationwide are chosen for this honor and opportunity.
