Edward Botchwey, associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, received the 2019 Mid-Career Award from the Society For Biomaterials (SFB). This prestigious award is specifically given to recognize an individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in the field of biomaterials research with more than ten years and less than 20 years following his/her terminal degree or formal training.
As the recipient of the Society For Biomaterials 2019 Mid-Career Award, Botchwey will receive a $1,000 award from the Society For Biomaterials, and travel expense reimbursement to the Society’s 2019 annual meeting in Seattle, WA.
“I am deeply honored to receive the Mid-Career Award [from the Society for Biomaterials], said Botchwey. “The Society has experienced tremendous growth and success in recent years and was the first scientific organization to which I belonged. I am proud to be involved with the Society. I also want to say thank you to my nominators and biomaterials colleagues here in the Coulter BME Department and the Petit Institute for their support.”
