Two Bioengineering Ph.D. alumni have received NIH Director’s New Innovator awards for 2010!
Dino DiCarlo, PhD 2006, and Michelle Khine, PhD 2005, have both received this five-year, $1.5 million grant. The New Innovator Award is the largest and most prestigious grant awarded to junior investigators by the NIH, designed to enable recipients to pursue exceptionally innovative approaches that could transform biomedical and behavioral science.
DiCarlo is now an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at UCLA, and Khine is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at UC Irvine.
Berkeley Bioengineering faculty member, Assistant Professor Amy Herr, also received a New Innovator Award this year.
