Human physiology major awarded Peter White Fellowship
University of Delaware rising junior Matt Carr, an honors human physiology and liberal arts double major, spent his summer conducting data collection and analysis as part of ongoing research in the Department of Physical Therapy. He volunteered in Professor Darcy Reisman’s lab this past spring and was awarded the Peter White Fellowship, which allowed him to dive deeper into research over the summer. For the past 10 weeks, he’s worked alongside Reisman, who is the department chair, in her research on stroke recovery.
“Stroke is a huge issue in the world, and people are not walking as well as they’d like to, and we want to help them walk better,” Carr said. “I found that fascinating and a worthy research cause that I wanted to contribute my time to and enjoy it.”
