2022 Karl H. & Gisela M. Schoenbach Fellowship
The Karl H. & Gisela M. Schoenbach Fellowship endowment was established in 2018 to provide fellowships for graduate students pursuing a graduate research program in bioelectrics at the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics. Fellowships are assigned based on merit, candidates must be nominated by Center faculties and must be full-time students at the Center.
Emily Gudvangen and Kamal Asadipour are the 2022 recipients of the fellowship. Emily is a fourth-year student in the biomedical engineering graduate program at ODU. In Dr. Pakhomov's group, she studies pulsed electric fields ablation of cancer tissue. Kamal is also a fourth-year student in the biomedical engineering graduate program and with Dr. Beebe he studies the immunostimulatory effects of nanosecond electric pulses.
