Research assistant receives Baxter Young Investigator Award

Research Assistant Chad Satori has received a Baxter Young Investigator Award 2011, which honors researchers focused on the development of therapies and medical projects that save and sustain patients' lives.

The award includes $1,000, and an opportunity for Satori to present his research results at an awards ceremony, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 13, at Baxter International Inc.'s corporate headquarters in Deerfield, Ill.

Satori is a fifth-year graduate student and research assistant in the lab of Professor Edgar Arriaga. His dissertation project is titled "High Enrichment of Lysosomes and Late Endosomes with Magnetic Separation." The objectives of his work are twofold: the magnetic enrichment, analysis, and specific biotransformations of endocytic organelles; and the magnetic immuno-purification, detection, and analysis of autophagosomes.
