Tarek Fahmy, Ph.D., and Erin Lavik, Sc.D., both assistant professors of biomedical engineering, have received Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Early Career Translational Research Awards in Biomedical Engineering. Fahmy was recognized for his developing nanoparticle technology that can track T cells (such as those responsible for lupus) by MRI and can also deliver drugs to those cells. Lavik was honored for her development of a long-term drug-delivery technology for the treatment of glaucoma. The awards were established in 2005 in memory of the foundation’s benefactor, “an engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur who believed that the results of research must be taken to the stage of a commercially viable product in order to truly benefit humanity.”
