cridleyMs. Courtney Ridley has been selected as a T-35 Summer Research Trainee at the Boys Town National Research Hospital.  These pre-doctoral short-term research traineeships are part of an initiative by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) to enhance the exposure of clinical doctor of audiology students to research, and to foster an interest in research careers in audiology.  Trainees work alongside established scientists for a concentrated full-time hands-on experience.  The Boys Town program is highly competitive, and has produced remarkable outcomes: over 75% of T-35 students in audiology have first-authored or co-authored publications in high impact journals.
