Doctoral students to study biology, mechanics connection under NIH grant
Date:7/3/2014

and growing need in the scientific community.

The Washington University students who train under the grant will cross disciplines: those who are studying biology will take basic courses in mechanical engineering, and engineering students will take basic biology courses.

In addition, students will conduct research on a variety of length scales, from the tiniest (nanometer) to larger sizes, corresponding to structures from the molecular and cellular level to the tissue level. They will also to spend eight to 10 hours a year doing outreach activities with high school or younger students.

"Outreach helps students develop teaching and communication skills," Bayly says. "One of the best ways for Washington University to be a good member of the community is to take all of this intellectual horsepower we have in our students and bring it to bear in St. Louis."

The School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis focuses intellectual efforts through a new convergence paradigm and builds on strengths, particularly as applied to medicine and health, energy and environment, entrepreneurship and security. With 82 tenured/tenure-track and 40 additional full-time faculty, 1,300 undergraduate students, 700 graduate students and more than 23,000 alumni, we are working to leverage our partnerships with academic and industry partners across disciplines and across the world to contribute to solving the greatest global challenges of the 21st century.
