Bioengineering grad student lands prestigious optics scholarship

MU Bioengineering graduate student Mason Schellenberg has done extensive work developing a handheld device to better determine the severity of burn wounds using ultrasound in his time in the lab of Heather Hunt, assistant professor of bioengineering. His efforts caught the attention of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), the world’s leading society for optics and photonics, and they decided to aid his journey.

SPIE granted one of its very competitive Optics and Photonics Education Scholarships to Schellenberg in recognition of his research work and in support of his future goals. Only 88 such scholarships were given out to SPIE student members around the globe this year.
