Jamie Spangler received Maryland Outstanding Young Engineer Award
Jamie Spangler, the William R. Brody Faculty Scholar and assistant professor in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, received the Maryland Outstanding Young Engineer Award. The honor is chosen by the Maryland Academy of Sciences.
Spangler’s research focuses on redesigning naturally occurring proteins and engineering molecules to overcome the shortcomings of existing medications and therapeutics.
The Outstanding Young Engineer Award is given in the name of Allan C. Davis, a Baltimore native and 1917 graduate of Johns Hopkins University.
