Congratulations to current Puetzer Lab PhD student Leia Troop and former lab undergraduate Madison Bates for being awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowships!! The NSF GRFP awards exceptional graduate students with 3 years stipend and tuition coverage to advance their studies in STEM-based disciplines. Leia will be continuing her research evaluating how cyclic tensile loading drives hierarchical fiber maturation and LOX crosslinking in engineered ligaments. Madison is currently a PhD student at Vanderbilt University in Dr. Cynthia Reinhart-King's lab. Congrats Leia and Madison!!!
