Congratulations to Emily Kilroy, 2021 Nedra Gillette Endowed Research Fellowship Awardee
Congratulations to our 2021 Nedra Gilette Endowed Research Fellowship Awardee, Emily Kilroy, MS, Ph.D., University of Southern California Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, Neural Correlates of Sensory Processing In Autism Spectrum Disorder.
“This research project will inform the development of targeted occupational therapies for children with Autism and co-occurring sensory processing difficulties by identifying unique neural mechanisms related to social and non-social sensory processing and investigating how activity in sensory-related brain regions is related to barriers to occupational engagement. I extend particular thanks to my research mentors Dr. Aziz-Zadeh and Dr. Cermak for their continuous support and guidance.”
To honor its namesake Nedra Gillette, the Nedra Gillette Endowed Research Fellowship award is in support of a postdoctoral researcher's foundational occupational therapy study into the human condition. Please make a gift to help us support the future of OT, strengthen evidence-based practice and improve the quality of care. Your generosity will secure this scholarship for generations of OTs.
