Kara Davis Awarded NIH Fellowship

Congrats to Kara Davis for being selected as a new fellow in the NIH supported Clinical and Translational Science Program at UK. Kara designed a translational science research proposal and a formal career development plan. Her strong performance in both the written application and the formal interview resulted in her selection for this program. Please join me in congratulating her.

Congrats, Dr. Wu!

I’m proud to announce Pei-Jung Wu successfully defended her dissertation entitled, “CELL SURFACE COATINGS FOR MAMMALIAN CELL-BASED THERAPEUTIC DELIVERY”

MACE Poster Awards!

Congrats to Kara and Lauren for their outstanding performance at the Departmental Poster Competition this year. Out of 17 posters across Chemical and Materials Engineering, they won the top two spots!
