Dr. Ashley Brown’s innovative research on advanced wound healing and her belief in pursuing collaborative projects has landed her with an invitation to join the 2018 Frontiers of Engineering (FOE) program! The goal of the Frontiers of Engineering Program is to bring together engineers from all engineering disciplines and from industry, universities, and federal labs to facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange and promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields in order to sustain and build U.S. innovative capacity. The program brings together a select group of emerging engineering leaders to discuss pioneering technical work and leading edge research. The goal of the programmatic meetings is to introduce these outstanding early career engineers to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders.

Ashley will attend the 2018 US FOE Symposium at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory in September of this year. Way to go, Ashley!
