Kris Saha, Ph.D., was selected one of 23 scientists from across the nation to receive a Young Investigator Award at the Frontiers in Bioengineering Workshop Feb. 25-26, 2013, in Atlanta. The award recognizes Saha’s contributions to the field over his career thus far.
The awardees are scheduled to present posters at the workshop, hosted by the Georgia Tech Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience. Frontiers is a two-day, interdisciplinary convergence of leaders from the fields of bio-imaging, biomaterials, and cellular and molecular bioengineering. Primary objectives of the workshop include construction of dialogue pertaining to cutting-edge research, and identification of the industry's most critical challenges.
Saha is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and is part of the Bio-nanocomposite Tissue Engineering Scaffolds (BIONATES) research theme at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
