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.)
I am tremendously proud and delighted to announce that the Virtual Issue for Bioconjugate Chemistry celebrating Women in Science is available! Please take a look. Erin Celebrating Women in Science
Rakan El-Mayta presented his work on screen printing tissues at the annual Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium. His work was highlighted as a great example of the work undergraduates do at UMBC. Well done, Rakan! https://news.umbc.edu/umbcs-summer-undergraduate-research-fest-2018-spotlights-talents-of-emerging-scientists/
Congratulations to the lab on our contract to develop nanomaterials for self healing dental resins! We are tremendously excited to be working with the Naval Medical Research Command on this work.
We just received an NSF award, Collaborative Proposal: Engineered Architecture for Tissue Models with Rebecca Carrier at Northeastern! We are so excited to work together to develop new models of neural networks and the colon.
Narendra passed his qualifier on Tuesday. Well done, Narendra!
