Biomedical engineering student accepted into Harvard’s Summer Student Research Program
Whitney Souery, a student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been accepted into Harvard’s Neonatology Summer Student Research Program at Boston Children's Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Students are selected by the directors of the program based on an assessment of each applicant’s application. The objective of the Summer Student Research Program is to provide motivated students with an intensive laboratory and clinical research experience under the guidance of faculty and fellow mentors from their academic program.
Souery is also actively involved in the engineering department and several campus-wide organizations, including Texas Runners Against Cancer, the University Disciplinary Appeals Panel, the Society of Women Engineers, and serves as a leader in the Engineering Honors Executive Committee.
Souery has been working in Dr. Corey Bishop’s Pharmacoengineering Laboratory since the fall of 2016, and is currently endeavoring to automate an injection system for microbubbles used for drug delivery applications.
