Joint PhD Program Focused on Translation
An innovative joint PhD training program leverages the combined strengths at the University of Oregon Knight Campus and Oregon State University.
This year’s class includes students with many transdisciplinary research interests, from applying machine learning to the development of therapeutics, to using mechanical engineering skills to regenerate bone tissue.
Kaylee Meyers, one of the second-year students in the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact’s Bioengineering PhD program, has just been awarded a prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) award from the National Science Foundation.
Three bioengineering faculty have received National Institutes of Health grants totaling nearly $5 million to support powerful research with the potential to help us heal faster, be healthier, and live better.
Mentorship and student access are at the heart of the Knight Campus mission. Bioengineering Assistant Professor Marian Hettiaratchi is among those recognized at the UO for her teaching efforts and student mentorship.
Knight Campus Bioengineering Associate Professor Paul Dalton and his international colleagues helped advance melt electrowriting (a high-resolution technique), improving manufacturing precision and quality control in 3D-printing.
