In June, the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Bioengineering in the School of Engineering Arts & Sciences was awarded a $14 million Leadership-Development grant from the Whitaker Foundation. This grant will be matched by University support of $42.8 million for a total $56.8 million initiative in bioengineering.

Daniel A. Hammer, professor and chair of bioengineering at Penn and principal investigator on the award stated, “This is an extraordinary time for biomedical engineering in the U.S. and Penn, with its strengths in engineering and medicine, is well-poised to take advantage of new medical discoveries and new advances in human health.”

With this award, the Bioengineering Department will gain a new building, with modern research and educational facilities, and will allow the department, now 14 faculty members strong, to grow in size by more than fifty percent.
