Two of Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s biomedical engineering Ph.D. students were awarded American Heart Association Pre-doctoral Fellowships for two years. Students John Favreau and Chris Scully’s proposals entitled “In Vivo Correlation of Intimal Hyperplasia with Circumferential Strain in the Vein Graft Wall Using a Murine Model” and “Spatiotemporal Organization of Renal Autoregulation” respectively were chosen by the American Heart Association for funding. The awards will begin on January 1, 2012 and end December 31, 2013 for an amount totally $44,000. American Heart Association Pre-doctoral Fellowships help students to begin careers in cardiovascular and stroke research by providing research assistance and training. Only about 20% of proposed projects are granted funding by the American Heart Association.
