Kelly Stevens, an assistant professor of bioengineering and pathology at the University of Washington, has received a 2016 National institutes of Health (NIH) New Innovator Award to support her work to build artificial human tissues from stem cells, and to remotely control these tissues after implantation in a patient.

The award, worth up to $300,000 annually over five years, supports exceptionally creative, early-career investigators who are pursuing research ideas that have potential for unusually high impact in areas of biomedical and behavioral science.
