Student Wins New Jersey Space Grant Consortium Scholarship

CAMDEN — Matthew Ratti, a Voorhees resident, has been awarded a prestigious New Jersey Space Grant Consortium scholarship for research he is performing as a junior biology major at Rutgers–Camden .

The consortium was established in 1991 by a grant from NASA to foster research development in New Jersey and advance education in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  It awards one-year fellowships to undergraduate students enrolled at New Jersey universities to conduct research in STEM and space science related fields.

Ratti, a 2007 graduate of Pennsbury High School in Fairless Hills, Pa., was awarded a $2,000 stipend to support research involving the anti-microbial effects of nanoparticles.

Last summer, Ratti participated in the exclusive Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program at University of Alabama-Birmingham.  As one of only 10 students from across the country selected to perform research under the supervision of UAB faculty, he studied experimental stem cell therapies for thalassemia, otherwise known as Cooley ’s anemia.
