Nozomi Nishimura selected for 2017 Cook Award
Congratulations to Meinig School Assistant Professor Nozomi Nishimura, selected to receive a 2017 Cook Award. As a principal investigator in the Schaffer-Nishimura Lab at the Meinig School, Dr. Nishimura’s research involves studying the contribution of multiple physiological systems to disease initiation and progression, with applications in neurodegenerative disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
The Cook Award honors individuals who deserve recognition for their commitment to women's issues and their contributions to improving the climate for women at Cornell University, and is named in honor of the late Constance E. Cook, Cornell's first woman vice president, and the late Professor Emeritus Alice E. Cook, founding member of the Advisory Committee on the Status of Women.
Dr. Nishimura will be recognized for her achievements at a reception in spring 2017.
