BME Assistant Professor Matt Fisher has been named one of the 2020 Rising Stars by the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Special Interest Group within BMES, Biomedical Engineering Society. Awardees provide a podium presentation in a special session at the annual conference. 2020 Rising Star Awards will be presented January 2nd - 6th in Puerto Rico.
The BMES Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Special Interest Group brings together researchers with diverse scientific and clinical interests with a common goal of understanding and engineering molecules, cells, their interactions and microenvironments in the pursuit of controlling biological processes and improving the practice of medicine. Because CMBE SIG is committed to supporting new investigators within the field, the “Rising Star” award is given to a select group of exceptional junior principal investigators each year.
