Ohio State has awarded Ana Salazar-Puerta, a third-year graduate student in Biomedical Engineering, with its Presidential Fellowship. This fellowship is the most prestigious graduate fellowship that the school awards.

The fellowship is awarded to two students from each of the graduate school's programs. According to the Graduate School, "the Presidential Fellowship gives fellows one year, 3 consecutive semesters, of full-time financial support. This support is provided so fellows can complete their dissertations or terminal degree projects and to graduate unimpeded by other duties."

"It is an amazing honor to represent the Nanomedicine Lab and the Biomedical Engineering department as a Presidential Fellow." - Ana Salazar-Puerta

Ana will use the fellowship to support the remainder of her dissertation work. Her work focuses on using engineered extracellular vesicles to mitigate lung inflammation. She began her fellowship in the spring semester of 2022 and will finish at the end of the fall 2022 semester.
