Dr. Maisha has defended her PhD brilliantly. She is deeply thoughtful, incredibly hardworking, and a brilliant scientist, teacher, and leader. She will be starting a new position at Bluebird Bio. They are incredibly lucky to have her.
Yesterday, Narendra successfully defended his PhD thesis proposal, “Development of a novel 3D bioprinting method for an in vitro colon model” Congratulations on becoming a PhD candidate, Narendra!
Today, Nuzhat Maisha successfully defended her PhD proposal, “Investigating the role of materials properties of nanoparticles in complement-mediated hypersensitivity reactions through in vitro and in vivo studies” It was a beautiful proposal. Congratulations, Nuzhat!
It was a great pleasure to give a talk as part of the editorial team for Bioconjugate Chemistry at State Key Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering in Beijing. It was truly humbling to meet everyone and see the brilliant work the team there is doing.
Nuzhat Maisha and Narendra Pandala Goud represented the lab beautifully at the annual BMES meeting in Philadephia this year. It is such a great privilege to work with such brilliant, wonderful people.
Tobias Coombs presented his poster on the complement response to nanomaterials at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students and won a presentation award! Congratulations, Tobias!
Today, Sydney defended her Master’s thesis on developing polyurethane nanoparticles for self-healing applications. Her work was phenomenal, and she did a brilliant job of presenting it. She passed with flying colors, and left all of humbled. When she proposed to make a self-healing material, we all had many, many doubts, but today, she demonstrated that… Read More Sydney Defends her Thesis!
Today, Josh presented his work on developing the screen printing process and characterizing the reproducibility and application at URCAD. Congratulations, Josh, on a brilliant poster and presentation.
Narendra and Nuzhat presented their work beautifully at the local Biomaterials Day at College Park. Their work represents two important branches of the lab: engineering new tissue models and developing novel hemostats. Well done!
A few of us from the lab were honored to participate in the Hilltop Society Dinner this year. Nuzhat spoke about her work, and we all had a wonderful time interacting with supporters of UMBC. (And we wore our spiffy clothes.)
