Chassis Plans is pleased to announce Grace Bushnell won the Winter 2015 Chassis Plans Leadership in Engineering Scholarship. Grace’s outstanding essay is located here. Grace is a second year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan. Grace is originally from a small farming town in Northern Illinois. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering in 2013 and Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering in 2014, both from Northwestern University. Her undergraduate research was focused on endovascular coiling of aneurysms and mussel-inspired biomaterials to serve as surgical adhesives. Her current graduate research is focused on developing biomaterials for the study, detection, and treatment of metastatic cancer. Grace plans to work as a post-doctoral fellow following her PhD and hopes to eventually join academia as a faculty member to both teach and develop a biomaterials research program.
