UC Berkeley PhD candidate Sarah Daniels received a Founder Region Fellowship (FRF) from Soroptimist International of the Americas. FRF awards one-year grants to female scholars in the final phase of their doctoral degree.
FRF seeks to support women who are working in fields traditionally held by men or in fields that have social importance to the world. The award also recognizes the significance of the recipients’ studies.
Daniels’ research interests include molecular biology, epidemiology, biostatistics and causes of chronic diseases. Her PhD studies focus on the use of leading-edge technology to examine environmental exposures and identify biomarkers related to type II diabetes.
Daniels received her award at the Founder Region’s reception held on May 1, 2015, in San Ramon, CA.
