Three students in the Department of Bioengineering were awarded an Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) grant: Thomas Fox, Samantha Passman and William Fischer.
Fox is under the mentorship of Dr. Gibson. His proposal is entitled “Investigating new methods of neural-navigation using Optical Coherence Tomography.” Both Passman and Fischer are mentored by Dr. Benninger. Samantha’s proposal is “Blood flow measurement as a tool for measuring inflammation across murine pancreases” and William’s proposal “Investigating Cumulative Effects of Multiple Gene Variants on Type 2 Diabetes Risk Using Computer Modeling”
Congratulations Thomas, Samantha and William!
