News from Sînziana Popescu, 2018-2019 Fulbright Student Researcher @UCLA

"During my first two months in Los Angeles I had the privilege to experience firsthand the UCLA core values, namely the commitment to the pursuit of scientific excellence and innovation, as well as its application towards the betterment of societal challenges. As a Fulbright visiting researcher in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, I hope that my research in the field of tissue engineering will one day provide solutions to the biomedical issues I am studying.

Being a Fulbrighter has granted me access to the most incredible network of people, as I had the pleasure to discover during the generous Luncheon hosted by Dr. Amarjit Marwah in his lovely residence in Malibu. This event enabled many of the 2018-2019 Fulbright grantees from all over the world to meet and discuss our cultural backgrounds not just among ourselves but also with the American personalities present at the event. So far my experience in the USA has been amazing and I am confidently looking towards the future."
