Dr. Lindsay Butler Receives Pre-K Award

Congratulations to Dr. Lindsay Butler for receiving the Pre-K Junior Faculty Career Development Award.

The Pre-K junior faculty career development award is sponsored by UConn Health’s Cato T. Laurencin Institute for Regenerative Engineering. It is a 2-year interactive program to equip junior faculty to become leaders in clinical and translational science.

Dr. Butler’s award will set up a mentoring team at UConn and UConn Health to develop a highly competitive proposal for a Career Development Award (K award) from the National Institutes of Health. The proposal will apply advances in biomedical engineering by using functional near-infrared spectroscopy for wearable, autism-friendly brain imaging. The goal is to understand the brain mechanisms associated with limited spoken language development in autistic children.
