To honor his life-long contributions in the field of bioengineering and his dedication to the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, the friends and colleagues of Bob Nerem established an annual award of up to $3,000 to support travel and living expenses for post-docs and graduate students traveling outside the United States as part of their research training.
To date, this award has allowed winners an opportunity to travel to universities such as Karolinska Institute, Sweden; RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan; the National University of Singapore, Singapore; the University of Twente, Netherlands; Weizmann Inst of Science, Israel; Queensland University of Technology, Australia; and ICFO, Spain as part of their research collaboration.
The Nerem Travel Award further increases the visibility of the Petit Institute around the world and has a major impact on the academic careers of the students who receive the award.
