EBRL’s own Dr. Laurie Cutting is to be awarded with the NIH Merit Award; an award created in 1986 designed to create long-term funding support to particularly outstanding investigators. Unlike most grant awards, the MERIT award cannot be applied for by the investigator, meaning only the most distinctly outstanding researchers are awarded it.
As reported in the article above: “(Dr.)…Cutting is among only 33 Vanderbilt researchers to have received an NIH Merit Award, and one of only 5 women.”
