UMKC School of Computing and Engineering alumni, Divya Ketharnath (M.S.E.E. 2008), was recently awarded an esteemed scholarship to continue pursuing her Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the University of Houston, where she is conducting nanoparticle research for cancer therapy applications.
Ketharnath received The Houston Electrical League Scholarship this fall. This merit-based scholarship is given to students conducting research within The Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TcSUH) multidisciplinary laboratories. The mission of the scholarship is to encourage interdisciplinary research with a focus on finding applications in biomedical sciences and engineering.
Ketharnath’s research involves manipulating nanoparticles using radio frequencies and ac magnetic fields for cancer therapy applications and conducting in-vitro cell studies at the Houston Methodist Research Institute.
