BIEN Graduate Student Reed Harrison Conducts Research with CNIO in Spain

Bioengineering graduate student Reed Harrison

Bioengineering graduate student Reed Harrison completed a two-month stay at the Spanish National Cancer Research Center (CNIO) in Madrid, Spain, where he performed bioinformatics research on coevolution of immune system proteins. Reed’s visit was possible by a prestigious Whitaker International Program summer grant.

The Whitaker International Program sends emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to undertake a self-designed project that will enhance their careers within the field. The goal of the program is to assist the development of professional leaders who are not only superb scientists, but who also will advance the profession through an international outlook. Along with supporting grant projects in an academic setting, the Whitaker International Program encourages grantees to engage in policy work and propose projects in an industry setting.
