Fischell Department of Bioengineering graduate student Kate Malinowski, advised by Associate Professor Warren D'Souza (Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Maryland School of Medicine), was presented with an Advancing Science in America scholar award at a ceremony sponsored by the Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) Foundation on Oct. 21 at George Washington University.

Malinowski's research is focused on improving radiation therapy outcomes by developing partial-least-squares-based methods for non-invasively localizing lung tumors that move with each breath. The ability to focus on a "moving target" ensures that more of the radiation goes directly to the site of the tumor, increasing the therapy's effectiveness, and decreasing side effects by reducing the total number of sessions required.

The ARCS Foundation provides science, medicine and engineering scholarships to outstanding students who are U.S. citizens contributing to the advancement of science and technology. Fellows are selected by representatives of the 52 U.S. academic institutions that the foundation supports, based on strict criteria and recommendations from departmental advisers and faculty, and receive a renewable award of $15K per year.
