The past six months have been full of challenges. To address public health needs during the pandemic, our bioengineering research labs have contributed immensely to the design and fabrication of PPEs, the development of diagnostic tools, and the discovery of innovative therapies. At the end of summer, we successfully held our first virtual graduation ceremony, and we congratulate the class of 2020 for their hard work and achievements! We are also proud to welcome new faculty member Jennifer Wilson, whose research is focused on systems biology and drug discovery. In the past few months, our faculty and students have received many national and international recognitions and awards. Meanwhile, our bioengineering education programs continue to excel at all levels. Our new Master of Engineering-Translational Medicine program has started recruiting students for 2021. Two multidisciplinary training grants have recently been awarded to the UCLA/CalTech team by the NIH. In this quarter, the ongoing bioengineering seminar series on COVID-19 has been a great success. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy through this unusual time, and I look forward to working together to take UCLA Bioengineering to new heights. Go Bruins!
