About Victoria
I joined the Grand Challenge Scholars Program because I was interested in taking the next step in my undergraduate degree. I also wanted to be meet with other students and faculty pursuing research in engineering. I picked Engineering Better Medicine because of the need for more organ donations. Between cancer, diseases, and bad health, many people need vital organ transplants. Unfortunately, there are not enough organ donations to help most of the people that are on the donation list. Through the Grand Challenge Scholars Program, I am looking forward to researching alternative medical solutions to traditional organ donations.
