NWC M.S. Program Graduate Wins IPA/DGUV Award for Young Exposure Scientists
Marissa Baker, NWC ERC M.S. program graduate and current DEOHS PhD candidate, was recently named the 2016 winner of the IPA/DGUV Award for Young Exposure Scientists from ISES - International Society of Exposure Sciences. The award, new in 2009 and formerly called the DGUV/BGFA Award, is to foster research in exposure areas with linkages to biomonitoring for superior doctoral students working on their dissertation or in the first year postdoctoral experience and whose doctoral field is exposure sciences, occupational/environmental health sciences, toxicology, biochemistry, biology or a related field. This award from the (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung - German Social Accident Insurance) Institute for Prevention and Occupational Medicine (IPA) was created to represent its high regard for the work of Professor Jüergen Angerer in furthering biomonitoring in exposure sciences in Europe and the rest of the world. Marissa will be honored at the 2017 International ISES Meeting.
