Bethesda, MD FASEB MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers) Program has announced the travel award recipients for the 2013 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) annual meeting in Seattle, WA from September 25-28, 2013. These awards are meant to promote the entry of students, postdoctorates and scientists from underrepresented groups into the mainstream of the basic science community and to encourage the participation of young scientists at the BMES annual meeting.
