Clark School chemical and biomolecular engineering graduate student Angela Lewandowski, and alumnus Adam Fisher, '03 chemical engineering, won research poster awards from Merck & Co. earlier this summer.

Ms. Lewandowski won the overall award, beating out 120 entries from graduate students, research scientists and postdoctoral associates. The award was announced at Biochemical Engineering XIV, the world's premier gathering of biochemical engineers. The award is given to the poster that best satisfies the judges' criteria for significance, relevance, scientific excellence and quality of presentation.

Ms. Lewandowski's poster described research about the signal-directed assembly of proteins on microfabricated devices that preserve biological function. This approach could have a significant impact on micromolecular biomanufacturing.

Mr. Fisher, B.S. '03 chemical engineering, won in the graduate student category. Mr. Fisher is now in graduate school at Cornell University.
