Hello All PhD Students:

It's that time of year again... time for the Bioengineering faculty to do a formal evaluation of the progress of doctoral students.

This yearly review of doctoral students in the program allows us to make sure everyone is on track, and to help us make decisions about scholarship/TA/GRA fund allocation. To help us with your evaluation, please prepare a brief progress report that covers the points below and submit it, together with you latest CV, to Professor Blackwell [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by May 30.
