Trisha Eustaquio, a Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering graduate student working with Professor Jim Leary, was selected as one of 137 outstanding individuals world-wide to receive a scholarship from SPIE (the International Society for Optics and Photonics).

As part of the award, Trisha present her nanobarcoding research (and pending patent) at an invited talk in San Diego at the SPIE Biosensing and Engineering Conference in August.

SPIE awarded $350,000 in scholarships to 137 outstanding individuals, based on their potential for long-range contribution to optics and photonics, or a related discipline. Award-winning applicants were evaluated and selected and approved by the SPIE Scholarship Committee.

To date, SPIE has distributed over $3.3 million dollars in individual scholarships. This ambitious effort reflects the Society's commitment to education and to the next generation of optical scientists and engineers around the world.
