Two “Best” Awards in One Week

  • Dr. Bell’s co-authored paper, System Integration and Preliminary In-Vivo Experiments of a Robot for Ultrasound Guidance and Monitoring during Radiotherapy, was the runner-up for the Best Paper Award at the 17th International Conference on Advanced Robotics in Istanbul, Turkey. The paper received honorable mention.
  • Dr. Bell’s student, Alicia Dagle, received the Best Presentation Award at the 2015 NSF Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics Research Experience for Undergraduates (CSMR REU) Award Ceremony. Alicia is an undergraduate student at Clark University who will pursue a joint engineering program with Columbia University. She worked closely with Dr. Bell at Johns Hopkins University throughout the ten-week summer program.

NIH K99 Pathway to Independence Award

Dr. Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell received the NIH Pathway to Independence Award for her project entitled Coherence-Based Photoacoustic Image Guidance of Transsphenoidal Surgeries. This award promises support for 1-2 more years of postdoctoral training and the first 3 years of Dr. Bell’s independent faculty position.

Dr. Bell Wins the Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship

Dr. Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell is selected as an awardee in the Ford Foundation Fellowship 2013 postdoctoral competition, sponsored by the Ford Foundation and administered by the National Research Council of the National Academies. The competition seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

Two-Time UNCF-Merck Fellowship Recipient

Dr. Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell was one of 10 postoctoral fellows to win the prestigious UNCF-Merck Postdoctoral Fellowship. She is officially a two-time recipient of the award, as she also won the graduate level award to complete her PhD dissertation entitled, Improved Visualization of Endocardial Borders with Short-Lag Spatial Coherence Imaging. The postdoctoral award totals $92,000 for a maximum of two years.
