Yijiang Chen, a graduate research assistant with the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, received the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Award worth $10,000 annually for up to two years. In addition, Chen received a travel award to attend the ASN Annual Meeting and Kidney STARS program.
The goal of the ASN Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Award Program is to fund PhD students to conduct original, meritorious research projects. This program will foster early career-stage PhD students—under the direction of a sponsor—who are highly motivated to make contributions to the understanding of kidney biology and disease.
Anant Madabhushi, the F. Alex Nason Professor II of Biomedical Engineering, advises Chen.
