Sophia selected to the NIH training grant on immunoengineering
Sophia was honored with selection to the NIH "Immuno-Engineering: Integrated Engineering and Immunology" training grant (T32) at Cornell
Congratulations to Sophia Hilbert who was selected to the Immuno-Engineering: Integrated Engineering and Immunology training program! The goal of this T32 training grant is to provide pre-doctoral students in engineering and immunology broad training in Immuno-engineering, from studying single molecules to whole animals, to improve the lives of patients. The unique aspect of this program is that training opportunities are available that enhance the interactions between engineers and immunologists, with a combination of 17 immunology and engineering faculty who will serve as faculty trainers. They represent a range of expertise including the innate immune response system, adaptive immune system, allergy, asthma, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, response to infectious agents, cell and tissue engineering, polymer chemistry, protein engineering, biomaterials, biocompatibility, drug delivery, molecular design, fluid dynamics, whole animal imaging, micro/nano-fabrication and technologies, and point-of-care technologies.
