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.

"I came to the Knight Campus because I believe in the mission to bring more practicality and translatability into a medical-based engineering learning environment. Personally, I find fulfillment in performing research where I can design and build technologies to help solve problems medical professionals encounter daily and create innovative STEM education programs that will outlive me,” Meyers said.

Meyers works in the Ong Lab at Knight Campus, which focuses on the development of new sensors and devices for medical applications, with emphasis on regenerative medicine for orthopedic care.
