The Whitaker International Program has funded approximately 400 emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) to undertake a self-designed project overseas that will enhance their careers within the field. The goal of the program is to assist the development of professional leaders who are not only superb scientists, but who also will advance the profession through an international outlook. Along with supporting grant projects in an academic setting, the Whitaker International Program encourages grantees to engage in policy work and propose projects in an industry setting.
Whitaker Alumni have continued to advance the field of biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) long after they have completed their grant projects. You can find a directory of Whitaker Fellow and Scholar Alumni, as well as a list of publications, through the links below:
