Georgia Tech researcher one of 18 innovative young scientists in the nation to receive prestigious honor
October 16, 2017 (Los Altos, CA) – Annabelle Singer, assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, was named today by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation one of 18 recipients of the prestigious 2017 Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering.
Fellows, who are considered among the most innovative, early-career scientists in the nation, will each receive $875,000 over five years to pursue their research.
“The expectation with this fellowship is that you will tackle big problems,” said Singer, also a researcher with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech. “This gives us the freedom to pursue some outside-the-box projects that could be really impactful. Unlike most grants, there are very few funding restrictions, meaning we can go wherever the science takes us.”
