Congratulations to our AxoGen Student Travel Fellowship recipients!

Congratulations to the following recipients of the AxoGen Student Travel Fellowship! 

Jamie Grooms, CEO of the Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research, provided a $1000 donation for these fellowships to help support student travel to Biomedical Engineering conferences. These winners are all presenting either an oral or poster presentation at the BMES Annual Meeting in Seattle.
