William Franceschi awarded PURA Fellowship
William Franceschi, a second-year BME student in the lab of Dr. Natalia Trayanova, Murray B. Sachs Professor of Biomedical Engineering and ICM core faculty member, has been awarded a Provost’s Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) for the 2016-2017 academic year. Willie’s proposal was chosen by a faculty selection committee from a large group of outstanding proposals. His research seeks to use LGE-MRI scans of hearts before and after catheter ablation to create patient specific models and attempt to reduce arrhythmia. Willie will receive a $2,500 fellowship to support his research and will present his current research in the PURA Poster and Recognition Ceremony scheduled for April 25, 2017.
