Nathan James Briglin received the Whipple Science & Research Scholarship at the University of Rochester in Rochester, N.Y.

The scholarship, awarded to academically excellent students who have a strong interest in science and/or research, is named after George Hoyt Whipple, pathology professor and dean of the university’s School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1921.

Whipple was one of three researchers awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1934 for his work on regeneration of blood and the treatment of anemia.
