Congratulations to this year’s eight Abrams Scholars selected from a very strong applicant pool of 36 BME undergraduates interested in guided laboratory research to enhance their undergraduate education. The eight are: Hunter Bomba, Matthew Conrad, Mehdi Hamouda, Austin Murray, Arianna Nasser, Michael Taylor, Davis Ranson, and Kathryn Ozgun. Abrams Scholars are outstanding BME undergraduate students who are selected to receive a stipend to conduct hands-on laboratory research projects. These projects are conceived and designed by the students with the guidance of a faculty mentor. The Abrams Scholar program honors C. Frank Abrams, Jr., a BME and BAE emeritus faculty member. Dr. Abrams led the development of the first courses in Biomedical Engineering at NC State and was instrumental in: the founding of NC State’s BME Department; the creation of the joint UNC-CH/NC State graduate program; and ultimately the launch of the UNC-CH/NC State Joint BME Department. He was the Joint Department’s first senior design instructor as well as the first Director of Graduate Studies. Congratulations to these eight outstanding BME Abrams Scholars!
