Vivian Lee Selected as 2015 Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow

Vivian Lee, a post-doctoral research in Guohao Dai's lab, has been selected to receive the 2015 Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship for her work on "Glioblastoma-endothelial interaction in 3D bio-printed tumor vasculature tissue". This is an outstanding achievement and it is actually the first time that a post-doc at Rensselaer has been selected for this fellowship. Being selected for this prestigious fellowship speaks highly for Vivian and is an indicator of the high quality of research that she is performing.

Vivian received her BS degree from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 2009 and a PhD from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2014. She decided to stay at Rensselaer in Guohao Dai's laboratory for her post-doctoral research.

About the program:
The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Program is intended to support postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and to assist in their transition from “mentored yet independent” postdoctoral to an independent, tenure-track position. Nearly all successful academic careers in science at present begin with a postdoctoral period of additional training and development prior to the first tenure tract appointment. These individuals are expected to become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology.
