Dr. Cheryl Meyerkord, shown with a pre-defense gift, successfully defended her dissertation on February 9, 2009. Cheryl completed her postdoc with Dr. Haian Fu, Emory University School of Medicine while also serving as the Administrative Project Manager for the Emory Chemical Biology Discovery Center. Following a year as a Research Associate, Cheryl became Content Editor for EB Medicine, the leading publisher of evidence-based diagnosis and treatment recommendations to help emergency clinicians provide the best patient care.

Cheryl received the Outstanding Graduate Student Award at the 2008 Moffitt Scientific Retreat.
