Behind the Scenes with Kate Casey-Sawicki

Kate Casey-Sawicki, assistant director of UF’s Breathing Research and Therapeutics (BREATHE) Center as well as UF’s Brain Injury, Rehabilitation, and Neuroresilience (BRAIN) Center, shares highlights of her wide-ranging duties, including grant writing, marketing and communications, management of training grants, web design, event planning and general project management.

“Kate is a true unsung hero,” said Michael Jaffee, M.D., director of the BRAIN Center. “She is the engine for two research centers and has been integral in grant applications, strategy, coordination and communications. She has been the organizing force behind the MBI’s Gator NeuroScholars postdoc fellowship program to attract some of the best postdocs to MBI.”
