Congratulations to the KI trainees and alums who have been making both news and waves across the media and awards circuit. The highest proportion of awards about which we’ve received word comes from the Langer and Anderson Labs. Suman Bose has been named among the top 40 under 40 Healthcare Innovators by Medtech Boston, Michael Mitchell is one of ten scholars awarded the interdisciplinary Career Awards at the Science Interface by the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund, and Omid Veiseh bids farewell to the KI after Rice University secured a $2 million grant from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas to recruit him to their Department of Bioengineering. Alumnus Armon Sharei was featured in Inc. Magazine after being named in their annual 30 under 30 list. Finally, congratulations to Bhatia Lab postdoc Simone Schurle on her prestigious Branco Weiss Fellowship, awarded by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) for her work in microrobotics and nanotechnology for cancer treatment.
