John Hickey Announced as Siebel Scholar

Siebel scholarships are prestigious awards that honor about 100 of the top graduate students nationwide in business, bioengineering, computer science, and energy science programs. Recipients are selected during their final year of studies based on their outstanding academic performance and leadership and will receive a $35,000 award.

The recently announced 2019 recipients includes one student from the Institute for NanoBioTechnology. John Hickey, PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, works in the lab of INBT researcher Jonathan Schneck, from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Hai-Quan Mao, INBT Associate Director and professor of Materials Science and Engineering.

Hickey’s research involves engineering next-generation biomaterials to create more effective cancer immunotherapies through control of particle and hydrogel biomaterial properties. “Becoming a Siebel Scholar makes me feel so grateful to not only the Foundation for establishing the award, but also to all my mentors, family, friends, and Hopkins community that have worked so hard to help me during my PhD,” said Hickey.
