Bioengineering and ISR Ph.D. student Thomas Winkler is the winner of the Russell & Sigurd Varian Award, one of the most prestigious graduate research awards given by the AVS. He is the first student from the University of Maryland to ever win the award.

Bioengineering and ISR Ph.D. student George Banis received the “Best Technical Presentation Award” from the AVS Biomaterial Interfaces Division.

Bioengineering and ISR Ph.D. student Ryan Huiszoon (BIOE/ISR) was selected as one of two student candidates for the “Best Oral Presentation” by the MEMS and NEMS Technical Group. The final results will be announced in the coming days.

All three students are advised by ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR).
