Jason Gleghorn, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, has been honored with a Rising Star Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES). One of just ten researchers in the nation to receive the honor, Gleghorn was recognized for his work on lung development, which is helping to lay the foundation for advances in the prevention and treatment of congenital birth defects, asthma and other respiratory disorders and diseases. In 2015 Gleghorn’s work was recognized by Oak Ridge Associated Universities, which awarded him one of its 35 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards, and in 2016 he received the Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research Award from the March of Dimes. He joined the UD faculty in September 2014 after completing postdoctoral fellowships at Cornell University in microfluidics and at Princeton University in molecular and developmental biology.
