Biomedical engineering Ph.D. students Jacqueline Scott and Wai Hoe Ng won awards for presenting research at the American Heart Association (AHA)’s 28th Annual Fellows Research Day (FRD). FRD is a conference designed to allow young investigators the experience of presenting their own work to their peers in a professional environment. The event highlights the importance of cardiovascular related research and encourages beginning scientists to pursue these types of careers.

Scott, who is advised by Keith Cook, won first in the clinical category. Her research interests include machine learning, physiological and computational modeling, regulatory science, and applied statistics.

Ng, who is advised by Charlie Ren, won second in the basic category.

Congratulations to both students!
