ROCK HILL, S.C. - Zainab Ghadiyali, a rising chemistry senior at Winthrop, has been awarded a Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst, or German Academic Exchange Service, scholarship to research alternative medicine techniques to treat German patients afflicted with post-traumatic stress syndrome.

She will spend the next academic year doing research in Germany and intends to return to Winthrop for her senior year during the 2008-2009 academic year. Her research experience under their tutelage of faculty member Chasta Parker, an assistant professor of chemistry, helped develop some of the qualities needed for this prestigious selection.
Ghadiyali is one of 54 undergraduate students from 45 Canadian and American universities selected by a panel of experts in higher education to receive the scholarship. The program is aimed at students who want to spend part of their third or fourth year of college in Germany. The grantees stay anywhere from a semester to a full academic year, either to study a variety of topics, for internships, or for senior thesis research.
Ghadiyali, who hails from Mumbai, India, is one of five chemistry students selected for the exchange service. She will spend her time at The Charité, the largest university hospital in Europe. The Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin is the medical school for the Free University of Berlin and the Humboldt University of Berlin.
