BAR HARBOR, ME — Terri Rodick spotted this good news about former Mission scholarship alumni Nicklaus Carter. Mr. Carter was awarded Mission Scholarships 2011 – 2015. Today he is a doctoral student in University of Maine’s Graduate School of Biomedical Science, “turning forest biproduct into innovative medical research.”

“Carter has found that conduit-treated peripheral nerve injuries regenerated nearly four times faster than those not treated. He hopes his findings will advance future peripheral nerve regeneration,” said UMaine Media Contact Christel Peters.
