Dr. S Kaisar Alam, a research-staff member of Riverside Research’s Lizzi Center for Biomedical Engineering, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and perform research at the Islamic University of Technology (IUT) during the 2011-2012 academic year. With this award, Dr. Alam becomes the first Riverside Research employee selected as a Fulbright Scholar. Dr. Alam said:
I am really honored to receive this prestigious award. This will give our group an opportunity to establish collaboration outside of our typical collaborator pool. I’m also glad for the opportunity to give back to the country where I was born and received my high-school education.
