BMES Congratulates the 2019 Travel Award Winners

Congratulations to all the 2019 BMES Career Development Award winners and BMES-NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) Travel Award winners. These awards assist with travel to attend the BMES Annual Meeting and primarily support major goals of the Annual Meeting and mission of BMES to broaden the inclusion of underserved and underrepresented communities at undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral levels, as well as junior faculty and career professionals, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in the meeting.
These awards are supported (in part) by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1922458 and by the National Institutes of Health – NIBIB, NCATS, NICHD, NCI and NIAMS under Grant No. R13EB026960.
