Gwendalyn J. Randolph, PhD, director of the Division of Immunobiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, has been chosen as a 2015 recipient of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director’s Pioneer Award.
The Pioneer Award is funded by the NIH Common Fund’s High-Risk, High-Reward Research program.
Established in 2004, the award challenges investigators at all career levels to pursue new research directions and develop groundbreaking approaches that have a high impact on a broad area of biomedical or behavioral science.
Randolph is one of 13 Pioneer award winners this year. Her project is designed to bring new conceptual and technical approaches to the study of inflammatory bowel disease, particularly Crohn’s disease.
