BESTie selected for GE Global Research Innovate

BESTie Marie Godla, 2nd year graduate student in Biomedical Engineering, was nominated by Cornell University to participate in an Annual Networking Event at GE Global Research center, the world headquarters for all of GE’s ongoing research efforts.  The center employs over 1,800 technologists who strive to uncover technological breakthroughs that will change the landscape for the GE businesses and improve the lives of GE’s customers around the world.  Some of the key technology areas at the Global Research Center include alternative energy, biotechnology, advanced propulsion, nanotechnology, next generation materials, advanced software and solid-state devices. 

During this three-day event, she and ~20 other graduate students from several universities will network with each other as well as accomplished professionals in a realistic, industrial setting.  In addition, they witness first-hand how graduate training can lead to exciting cross-disciplinary technical careers.

Monday October 6th at 2:30 PM through Wednesday, October 8th at 12 PM
GE Global Research campus, 1 Research Circle, Niskayuna, NY 12309

We look forward to the positive impact this experience will have in providing both networking opportunities and career path development for Marie and the other students in attendance.
