Danqiao Yu, 2020 Merrill Scholar

The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering proudly congratulates undergraduate senior Danqiao Yu on receiving a 2020 Merrill Presidential Scholar award. She named Meinig School Professor Mert Sabuncu as the Cornell faculty member who most significantly contributed to her college experience.

Merrill scholars – all in the top 1% of their class – are selected by their college deans for their intellectual vigor, leadership skills and potential to help society. They are given an opportunity to recognize the high school teacher who most inspired his or her scholastic development and the Cornell faculty member who most significantly contributed to his or her college experience. 

Since 1988, the Merrill Presidential Scholars Program has honored Cornell University’s most outstanding graduating seniors, while also recognizing the teachers who have played a significant role in ensuring their success. This unique program was created by the late Philip Merrill ’55 and is made possible through annual support from the Merrill Family Foundation.
