Congratulations to Tran Ngo on C. William Hall Scholarship and BME UG Excellence Award!

January  15, 2020

BME undergraduate student, Tran Ngo, was recently selected for the C. William Hall Scholarship from the Society for Biomaterials. This is a national recognition, and only one undergraduate student in the nation receives this each year. This award honors the memory of the Society’s first president, Dr. C. William Hall. See the following links for a brief history of the Society’s founding, and a biography of Dr. Hall. Tran received this award based on her “outstanding scholastic achievement and stated objectives for her research project and career”.  Tran has worked with graduate student Ben Spearman, until he defended in December 2019. She will be continuing research in the lab this spring, under the direction of postdoc, Dr. Eleana Manousiouthakis.

As the recipient of the 2020 C. William Hall Scholarship, Tran will have all of her expenses paid for participation in the 2020 World Biomaterials Congress in Glasgow, Scotland.

In addition to the prestigious C. William Hall Award, Tran received the BME UG Student Excellence Award in December. This award is the top undergraduate student award presented annually by the UF BME Department.

Congratulations to Tran on her amazing successes!
