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

itution has selected five top-ranked graduate students based on academic excellence and leadership to participate in the Siebel Scholars program.

"These leading universities are producing groundbreaking research in this discipline to solve urgent global problems," said Nitsa Zuppas, Executive Director of the Siebel Foundation. "These universities' most accomplished bioengineering graduate students will join a growing community of 540 past and present scholars that include their peers from top business and computer science programs."

The 2010 UC San Diego Siebel Scholars in bioengineering include Terrell Green, Amy Hsieh, Jennifer Singelyn, Julio Ng and Roy Lefkowitz.

"Receiving the Siebel Scholars grant will further help me to realize my dream of making an impact on society and how we think about science and engineering," said Terrell Green, who came to study bioengineering at UC San Diego after graduating from Tulane University with a biomedical engineering degree. "In my career as a bioengineer, I plan to help shape science policy. Being a Siebel Scholar gives me the unique opportunity to join a prestigious community of highly motivated proven leaders. By joining this community, I will be in a fertile environment to foster new ideas and fulfill the mission of the foundation, which is to find answers to the global issues facing us today."

Green, a Louisiana native, plans to graduate from UCSD in spring 2010. She said she chose UCSD's bioengineering department to further her graduate studies because, "I knew I would be working with some of the greatest minds in the field."

Green said support from organizations like the Siebel Foundation will not only help boost young careers but also help fuel the bioengineering field.

"The overall mission of the Siebel Foundation is to inspire its scholars to work collaboratively to solve society's most urgent problems," she said. "The field of bioengineering fosters collaboration by applying engi
