Sloan Foundation Awards fellowships to two biomedical engineering faculty

Two faculty members from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University have been awarded research fellowships from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The fellowships, awarded yearly since 1955, honor early-career scholars whose achievements mark them as among the most promising researchers in their fields.

In receiving their fellowships, Eva Dyer and Chethan Pandarinath, assistant professors in the Coulter Department, are ranked among “the best young scientists working today,” according to Adam F. Falk, president of the Sloan Foundation.

“Sloan Fellows stand out for their creativity, for their hard work, for the importance of the issues they tackle and the energy and innovation with which they tackle them,” Falk says. “To be a Sloan Fellow is to be in the vanguard of 21st-century science.”
