Paul Sheeran, a doctoral student working in Professor Paul Dayton’s lab, has won one of the 2014 Impact Awards from the Graduate School at UNC Chapel Hill. These awards are given to students who, with their faculty members, are conducting critical research at Carolina. The Impact Awards are specifically given to students whose research contributions affect North Carolinians. Sheeran’s work, developing new and highly sensitive contrast agents to aid in cancer treatment and diagnosis, aims to lower the increased cancer mortality rates that afflict rural NC counties.
