Bioengineering division presents research awards


The Division of Bioengineering and Environmental Health made the following undergraduate research awards in 1999-2000. The stipends were awarded on a competitive basis to support research in bioengineering.

Fall 1999 -- David A. Berry, a senior in brain and cognitive sciences from Mt. Kisco, NY; Princess I. Imoukheudeof Matteson, IL, a sophomore in chemistry and chemical engineering with a minor in biomedical engineering (BE);Fadilah A.
