Sikorski Awarded 2015-16 Fulbright U.S. Student Grant


Fischell Department of Bioengineering (BioE) senior Michael Sikorski was named the recipient of a 2015-16 Fulbright U.S. Student Grant for research in Spain. Sikorski was recognized for his project, "Evaluation of New Autologous Epidermis-dermis-hypodermis Trilayer Skin Substitutes." In Spain, Sikorski will evaluate the mechanical and structural benefits of new trilayer skin substitutes as compared to their previously constructed bilayer substitutes. He will be advised by Dr. Jose Luis Jorcano and Dr. Marcela Del Rio with the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Group (TERMeG) at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). After successfully advocating for the establishment of an exchange program with UC3M, Sikorski studied there during the spring 2014 semester. After returning from his Fulbright year abroad, Sikorski plans to attend medical school. With his fluency in Spanish and experiences in translational research, he hopes to serve diverse Spanish-speaking populations as a physician and contribute to international research collaborations as a scientist. Sikorski is a member of the Gemstone Program of the University Honors College, and is a 2014-15 Merrill Presidential Scholar.
