Dr. Taylor Ware
, assistant professor of bioengineering
at The University of Texas at Dallas, has received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award
from the National Science Foundation.
The highly selective grant supports early career researchers who exemplify the role of teacher-scholar and offers an opportunity for junior faculty to jump-start independent research.
Ware’s research project, titled “Designing Microscale, Shape-Morphing Liquid Crystal Elastomers as Tissue Adhesives,” will receive nearly $500,000 over the next five years.
