Dr. Natalia Trayanova receives WSE Faculty Scholar Award


Dr. Natalia Trayanova, professor of biomedical engineering and researcher in the Institute for Computational Medicine, has been named the Whiting School of Engineering’s first William R. Brody Faculty Scholar. Faculty Scholars are named for a three-year term and provide exceptional faculty with flexible financial support to promote their research, teaching activities, and entrepreneurial thinking.

Natalia’s award, which was established by Robert A. Seder, MD ’81 in honor of former Johns Hopkins President, William R. Brody, is given in recognition of her groundbreaking work in the development of computational tools and simulations that advance understanding and improve the treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders. Seder, a university trustee and a member of the Whiting School’s National Advisory Council and the Department of Biomedical Engineering’s Advisory Board, is the Chief of the Cellular Immunology Section at the National Institutes of Health’s Vaccine Research Center.
