BIEN Student Wins National Undergraduate Competition at Notre Dame

October 16, 2013


Claire H Tran, a BIEN student working under the supervision of Dr. Franco, won 1st price at the Notre Dame competition in nanoscience and nanoengineering. This is a national undergraduate conference. Tran's winning project was designing an in vitro bistable biological circuit using RNA aptamers. 

She won a $3000 prize and got to visit Notre Dame where she presented her project poster to a number of judges including those from Notre Dame, IBM, Raytheon, and Texas Instruments. We are all very proud of Claire H Tran.
