Our paper on blast trauma, brain injury, and hemostatic nanoparticles is published!

We have had the privilege of collaborating with Pamela Vandevord and her group at Virginia Tech for a number of years looking at the role of hemostatic nanoparticles in blast trauma. In this work, we saw that not only did the particles improve survival and physiological outcomes following blast trauma, but they preserved neural tissue… Read More Our paper on blast trauma, brain injury, and hemostatic nanoparticles is published!

National Eye Institute awards prize for ‘Retina in a dish’ competition

A proposal to create a living model of the human retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, won $90,000 in the National Eye Institute (NEI) 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge (3-D ROC). The NEI 3-D ROC is an initiative that seeks to design human retinas from stem cells. Erin Lavik, Sc.D., at the… Read More National Eye Institute awards prize for ‘Retina in a dish’ competition
