The Society for Biomaterials (SFB) has selected BME junior Jeremy Nortey to receive this year’s Cato T. Laurincin Travel Fellowship, a program that supports under-represented minorities in the field of biomaterials. Jeremy has more than illustrated his deservedness for this award while working under the mentorship of Dr. Ashley Brown in the Advanced Wound Repair Lab at NC State. The fellowship includes registration to the SFB Annual Meeting and Exposition in Minneapolis, airfare, hotels, transfers, and meals. In addition, Jeremy will be given a complimentary membership to the Society and will be assigned a mentor to guide him through the annual meeting, who will also help him pursue his advanced degree and career goals. His achievement has also been featured on the Charlotte Patch blog. Way to go, Jeremy!
