Siebel Foundation awards top UC San Diego bioengineering graduate students

neering principles to medicine to resolve the many health issues plaguing our society. Bioengineering is therefore a necessary means to the Siebel Foundation's overall goal.

"I would like to continue behind a long list of trailblazers engaging in cutting-edge research, fostering professional interactions, and promoting public awareness of the field of bioengineering," she added.

Roy Lefkowitz, who also graduates from UCSD's bioengineering department in spring 2010, began his studies as an undergraduate in electrical engineering at UCLA. He chose bioengineering as the focus of his graduate studies because it applies engineering principles toward solving biomedical problems.

"Bioengineering provides a new hope in the battle against diseases such as heart disease and cancer, and I wanted to contribute as much as I could to this fight because I know what is at stake," said Lefkowitz, who lost his father from a heart attack. "I choose UCSD's bioengineering department without any hesitation because it is one of the best bioengineering departments in the world.

"The Siebel Scholars award with help further my studies and future career through the prestige that this great recognition brings," he added. "Being a Siebel Scholar will help me stand out from the rest when looking for my next career opportunity."

Amy Hsieh noted that the Siebel fellowship will allow her to focus more on her research and to share her current ideas with other respective Siebel Scholars.

"The Siebel Scholars grant will also further my future career in that I will be able to pursue some of the translational ideas that I have developed over the years as well as converse with other Siebel Scholars to develop new ideas that may one day help influence or lead to the development of technologies and innovations that may benefit society," Hsieh said.

She said she chose UC San Diego's bioengineering department because of its renowned research, inspiring faculty, and it
