    As a Fulbright scholar, Maria will spend the next academic year conducting a clinical asthma trial at Bahrian's Royal College of Surgeons. Her research will update and share recommendations with clinicians in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. “COVID is what influenced my Fulbright,” she says. “Long-term effects from COVID are very scary. We had no idea what was going on. If there’s anything I can do to make this better in the future for other people, I will do it.”

    Sydney will head to Madagascar in fall 2022 to study the impact that conservation initiatives have on local communities and the environment. Over nine months she will analyze the impacts of conservation initiatives that occur through the Centre ValBio (CVB), a field station in Ranomafana National Park.

    Tyler Pugeda

    Tyler will work on a research project based at Charité Hospital in Berlin that investigates a possible mechanism for Alzheimer's disease. “While there are drugs that alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's, it is frustrating that there are no approved treatments to slow the progression of the disease. However, my Fulbright work could lead to the first groundbreaking therapy that slows the progression of Alzheimer's. It could also extend the use of this research to treat other neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's,” says Tyler.
