Meet the 2015 GAANN Fellows
The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering proudly congratulates the five students awarded the 2015 Graduate Assistantships in Areas of National Need (GAANN) fellowships.
This year’s winners are Alex Loiben (Cosgrove lab), Aaron Chiou (Fischbach-Teschl lab), Yudi Pardo (Luo lab), Thong Cao (King lab), and Jeffrey Mulligan (Adie lab).
The focus of this GAANN program is to train graduate students to conduct research in and teach biomedical engineering that will satisfy the increased demand for biomedical engineers who can make explicit and quantitative connections between phenomenon occurring at different scales and use that information to improve human health. It transcends traditional departmental boundaries and encourages interdisciplinary and multiscale approaches.
