Dean’s Citation Award
We are so pleased to celebrate Dr. Renata Guedes, who spent time in the Swallowing Systems Core laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow under Dr. Ianessa Humbert. While here, she investigated kinematics of laryngeal vestibule closure in swallowing. In particular, she wanted to learn more about transfer of laryngeal vestibule closure from training tasks to functional swallowing. While we certainly want to congratulate first author Dr. Guedes, we also want to congratulate the team who helped with various elements of this study. Lab collaborators Dr. Alba Azola and Dr. Phoebe Macrae, as well as lab members Kirstyn Sunday, Veerley Mejia, and doctoral candidate Alicia Vose, all contributed to this publication under Dr. Humbert’s leadership. We love to celebrate accomplishments like this as a team, with members both near and far.
Congratulations on this publication and the accommodation by the Dean!
