The SBB Research Group Foundation is proud to highlight the continued success of Alana Mermin-Bunnell after receiving the STEM Scholarship in 2022. The $2,500 award empowers students to create value for society by pursuing higher learning through interdisciplinary combinations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Mermin-Bunnell received the SBB Research Group Foundation STEM Scholarship during her junior year at Stanford University while pursuing a degree in Bioengineering.
Since receiving the scholarship, Mermin-Bunnell has interned at the National Institute of Health, conducted research in the Skylar-Scott lab at Stanford, and mentored elementary students through the Discovering Science Together Club. She also received the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow award and was recognized as a Tau Beta Pi Graduate Fellow. In the fall, Mermin-Bunnell will begin pursuing her PhD in Medical Engineering at the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program.
“Alana has such a bright future ahead of her in medical engineering. It’s an honor to be part of her path to success," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of the SBB Research Group Foundation.
The SBB Research Group Foundation is honored to have played a role in Mermin-Bunnell’s success. We look forward to continuing to support outstanding students in STEM and helping them achieve their full potential.
