Keith Arlotta, Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. student, has been awarded a 2019 University Graduate Research Fellowship. The University awards Graduate Research Fellowships to full-time graduate students who are conducting research or creative projects and who are pursuing the terminal graduate degree in their departments. Only 12 to 15 awards are given each year across the entire campus.

Arlotta graduated from the University of Michigan in 2014 with a B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering with a focus on synthesis and characterization of antibody drug conjugates.  When asked about receiving this award, Arlotta stated, “I am extraordinarily grateful to be awarded the UGR Fellowship. This fellowship will provide me more freedom to pursue the intricacies of my research on targeted antibody-based therapeutics.”
