Bioinformatics Scholarship Recipients

Thirteen Miami University students have been awarded the 2014-2015 Choose Ohio First Bioinformatics Scholarship. Bioinformatics is the application of computational techniques to molecular biology problems. It is one of the fastest growing areas in science.

The College of Engineering & Computing would like to offer its congratulations to the following students receiving the scholarship.

  • Alexandre Tessier, sophomore electrical engineering major from West Chester, OH
  • Megan Ruffley, senior computer science and botany majors from Grove City, OH
  • Mitchell Graham, junior computer science and bioinformatics double minor with a biology major from Dublin, OH

The goal of the Choose Ohio First Bioinformatics Scholarship Program is to set Ohio on track to be a leader in the bioinformatics industry by ensuring a well-prepared pool of diverse, highly trained students to enter the bioinformatics workforce in Ohio.

The award was created in 2008 by the Ohio Bioinformatics Consortium and is funded by a grant from The Choose Ohio First Scholarship Initiative Program.
