Siebel Foundation awards top UC San Diego bioengineering graduate students
Date:9/24/2009

As breakthrough discoveries in bioengineering become more crucial to fundamental global issues, including health, food production and water supplies, UC San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering's top ranked bioengineering department continues to be on the cutting edge of this field. The Siebel Foundation has recognized the Jacob School's pioneering efforts with a $2 million endowment to fund fellowships for some of its top bioengineering graduate students. The fellowships will be administered by the UCSD Institute for Engineering in Medicine (IEM), in collaboration with the Jacobs School. The IEM brings together faculty in engineering, medicine and pharmaceutical sciences who are collaborating on novel approaches to medicine.

This is the first year the Seibel Scholars program which recognizes the most talented students at the world's leading graduate schools of business and computer science will include top students from leading universities that are breaking new ground in bioengineering. The Jacobs School of Engineering established one of the first bioengineering departments in the country, and it is currently ranked No. 2 by U.S. News & World Report for graduate students.

"We are grateful to the Siebel Foundation for this generous gift," said Frieder Seible, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego. "The Jacobs School commends the Foundation for its vision to include the leading bioengineering programs in the United States in the Siebel Scholars Program. We are pleased that our students have been recognized for the quality of their research in a wide-range of emerging areas, from systems biology to regenerative medicine. As Siebel Scholars, our bioengineering students are poised to make even greater strides in breakthrough discoveries that will benefit society."

Besides UC San Diego, the Siebel Foundation chose top bioengineering scholars at UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University, MIT, and Stanford University. Each inst
