Armour College of Engineering Graduate Student Awarded Research Fellowship in Taiwan

Armour College of Engineering graduate student Jarel Gandhi (Biomedical Engineering) has been awarded a fellowship position in the National Science Foundation (NSF) East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) Program.

An EAPSI award provides U.S. graduate students in science, engineering, and education with first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan; an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and an orientation to the society, culture, and language. It is expected that EAPSI awards will help students initiate professional relationships to enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.

Gandhi will spend 10 weeks in Taiwan this summer. He will work with some of the world’s top microsurgeons at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital on engineering vascularized bone for treatment of traumatic defects.
