BME student awarded a NSF Young Professionals Award

Congratulations to BME Ph.D. student Jackson Cagle who won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Award for Young Professionals Contributing to Smart and Connected Health at the 38th Annual IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (EMBC’16).

The Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society partnered up with NSF at this year’s conference to host a series of events that will engage students in advanced research and professional development. Jackson recently joined Dr. Gunduz’s lab to continue working on a closed-loop deep brain stimulation system, which he initiated during his senior design project at UF. The NSF award includes a $500 travel award.

Congratulations, Jackson!
