The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Foundation recently announced that Michael Dinh has been named a 2015 Goldwater Scholar. Dinh, a junior biological sciences and psychology double major and member of the Glynn Family Honors Program, was one of 260 scholarship recipients selected from over 1,200 applications.
Dinh’s undergraduate research is focused on neuroscience and has worked with Patrick Sheets, adjunct assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Notre Dame and assistant professor of pharmacology and toxicology at Indiana University School of Medicine – South Bend, for over two years studying neuropathic pain and anxiety disorders. His research aims to identify how the brain changes in response to chronic pain, with the ultimate goal of finding novel treatments for pain and anxiety.
