Congratulations to Ryan Oliver who was awarded the Microfluidics in Biomedical Sciences Training Program fellowship for his work on the microfluidic synthesis of functional nano and microparticles designed to interface with biological systems.
“The MBSTP is a National Institute of Health (NIH) / National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) funding training program that supports an interdisciplinary approach to graduate training that emphasizes biomedical microfluidics. The program supports 6 students each for 2 years. 45 faculty members from 20 different deparments from the College of Engineering, the College of LS&A, and the Medical School participate. The program is designed to be an intellectually exciting blend of training in the more quantitative disciplines of chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and physics on the one hand and the basic biological sciences on the other.”
