Primary tabs

The Fifth Annual Robert M. Nerem International Travel Award for predoctoral students has been awarded to Mr. David Dumbauld, a Ph.D. student in Prof. Andrés Garcia's lab. David will use the award to study with Prof. Benjamin Geiger, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, later this year. His focus area of study will be the "Role of Vinculin in Cell Adhesion Strengthening Response."

The award was established by colleagues and friends of Bob Nerem in honor of his lifelong contributions to the field of bioengineering and his dedication to the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience. The Nerem Travel Award is given annually to assist doctoral students in traveling outside the U.S. as part of their research training. The award consists of up to $2500 to support travel and living expenses. The Nerem Travel Award will further increase the visibility of the Petit Institute around the world and have a major impact on the academic careers of the students who receive the award.

Congratulations David!
