UW Bioengineering PhD student Nuvala Fomban grew up in the African country of Cameroon, and his research is inspired by his experience seeing how infectious diseases and cancer affect a disproportionate amount of the population in that country. In recognition of his work, Nuvala was recently awarded a NIH pre-doctoral fellowship.
This recent article from the UW Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity profiles Nuvala’s path to UW Bioengineering, his research and leadership experience at UW, and his future goals.
