The goal of the BioE Awards is to highlight outstanding achievements by faculty and graduate students who support the BioE interdisciplinary program. Our community is successful because of the generous and collaborative trainees and faculty that make up our program. Below are the winners for this year. We thank all the nominators and congratulate those who were nominated. Special thanks to Drs. Julie Babensee, David Ku, and Michelle Dawson for reviewing the nomination packages.
