Congratulations to Taylor Snodgrass !!

Taylor Snodgrass, PhD student in Communication Sciences and Disorders concentration, working under the direction of Dr. Jamie Perry has been awarded an NIH/NIDCR F31 Predoctoral Fellowship. The title of her grant is: Evaluating Velopharyngeal Function During Phonation in Children Utilizing Static MRI. For this award she will seek to describe the typical movement of the velopharynx in children without a history of cleft palate or hypernasal speech, as this could be used for comparison to children with hypernasal speech and can benefit surgical planning for children with hypernasal speech.
