Kim Woodrow, assistant professor of bioengineering, has received a 2015 UW Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. This award recognizes her commitment to guiding undergraduates to achieve success as research scholars.

She was nominated for the award by her students who are presenting their work at UW’s Undergraduate Research Symposium. A committee then selected a few awardees to honor at the symposium. In 2015, five faculty were chosen to receive awards.

The awardees will be recognized by Dean and Vice Provost of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Ed Taylor. In addition, UW Interim President Ana Mari Cauce and Interim Provost Jerry Baldasty will speak at the welcome ceremony.
