July 30, 2009

Jonathan Cook, a third-year graduate student in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Penn State College of Medicine, has been selected to receive the NASA Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium’s Space Grant Fellowship during the 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years. As part of this grant, he will receive a supplemental award of $5,000 per year.

The Space Grant’s mission is to expand opportunities for students to learn and participate in NASA’s aeronautics and space programs, as well as to support science and engineering education, and research programs. Cook works in the lab of Chet Ray, studying the effects of melatonin on blood pressure homeostasis and will use the grant money to help pay for his research and research-related travel while he is studying at Penn State Hershey.
