Zweifach Student Travel Award
Named in honor of Founding Society Member, two-time President, and pioneer of the field of microcirculation and bioengineering, who combined engineering principles with medicine to describe the mechanical properties of the microvasculature, tissue-specific vascular anatomies, microvessel fluid dynamics, lymphatics, and their application to human disease.
These awards are given annually to up to ten exceptional scientists-in-training to encourage their participation in the annual meeting of the Microcirculatory Society (at the Vascular Biology meeting) or the MCS Pre-Meeting at the American Physiology Summit.
