BME Undergraduate student Ella Hoogenboezem has been awarded a highly prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Student Research Fellowship for her graduate studies (she is still deciding on which program to attend!).
Ella has worked in our lab most recently on injectable nucleus pulposus with Dr. Becky Wachs who was a postdoc in the Schmidt Lab (and who is now a faculty member at U. Nebraska).
“The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions. For the 2017 competition, NSF received over 13,000 applications, and made 2,000 award offers.”
Congratulations to Ella on this prestigious honor!
