UW bioengineering M.S. student Rachel Shi has received a Fulbright fellowship to study the use of biopolymer coatings for biomedical devices at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPIP) in Mainz, Germany.

Rachel currently works in the lab of Buddy Ratner, joint professor of bioengineering and chemical engineering. The lab is part of a multidisciplinary partnership called the Center for Dialysis Innovation (CDI), which is co-directed by Ratner and Dr. Jonathan Himmelfarb. The CDI’s mission is to drive innovation in the field of dialysis research in order to improve the lives of patients experiencing kidney failure.
