U of M Student Chapter of the Society for Biomaterials Wins Travel Award

The U of M biomedical engineering student club received a $1600 award from the Society for Biomaterials (SFB) to support student travel to the World Biomaterials Congress (WBC) in Chengdu, China, 1-5 June 2012. The WBC happens once every four years and represents a rare opportunity for students to present and network with biomaterials professionals from around the world. The award is given to the most outstanding student chapters of the Society that demonstrate a consistent and on-going commitment to promoting biomaterial careers, professional development and community activities. The U of M student club was one of 3 chapters to receive the award. Funds were used to support travel of Heather Doty, PhD candidate in biomedical engineering and past-president of the National Student Section of SFB to attend the conference. Heather is currently on a J.W. Fulbright Fellowship conducting research on bone graft materials at the National University Hospital in Singapore.
