Emily Day, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Delaware, has been selected by the University’s Francis Alison Society to receive the 2018 Gerard J. Mangone Young Scholars Award.

The award recognizes promising and accomplished young faculty. The recipient is chosen by fellow faculty members who have received the Francis Alison Award, the University’s highest competitive faculty honor. In high school, Day was inspired by a science teacher who helped her appreciate the joy of learning something new and she now tries to pass that to her students at UD.

Day — who studies nanomedicine, gene regulation, photothermal therapy and translational cancer research — was nominated for this award by Dawn Elliott, professor and chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

“Dr. Day’s research is highly significant to the field of precision medicine,” Elliott wrote in her nomination letter.

In addition to being recognized as one of the most promising young scholars at UD, Day was recently honored as one of the most promising young researchers in the entire field of biomedical engineering. On Oct. 17, 2018, she received the Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society, the premier professional society for biomedical engineers.
