Prof. Howell receives 2023 Gilbreth Lectureship from National Academy of Engineering

Caitlin Howell, associate professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Maine, was awarded a 2023 Gilbreth Lectureship from the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).

NAE established the Gilbreth Lectures in 2001 in honor of Lillian Gilbreth, the first woman elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1965. The lectureship recognizes outstanding young American engineers and provides them with the opportunity to make presentations at NAE’s fall Annual Meetings and spring National Meetings.

Howell’s lecture at the 2023 NAE conference, which took place Feb. 9, 2023, in Irvine, California, was entitled “Materials-Based Approaches to Prevent Biofilm-Associated Infections.” (Howell’s presentation in the video starts at 54:09.)
