Take a look at Samanthas’ post on Performing Inclusive Research in the Lab!
Samantha will participate in the NIH T32 Tissue Microenvironment Training Program to aid in the advancement of biomedical sciences and healthcare in topics ranging from regenerative medicine to managing cancer.
Samantha presented at the Society for the Study of Reproduction Virtual Meeting last week. Her poster (#1870) was titled “Gelatin Hydrogel Platforms to Model the Endometrium and Trophoblast Invasion in Three-Dimensions”.
Tune in on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at 2:35 pm – 2:50 pm EDT to listen to Samantha’s talk on “Engineering the Endometrial Microenvironment Using Methacrylamide Functionalized Gelatin Hydrogels”. She will be presenting in Session 3: Organ & Tissue Modeling of the Virtual Symposium on Bioengineering Cell-ECM Interactions. Follow this link to register for free!
Congratulations to recent graduate Dr. Emily Chen, who has accepted a postdoc position in Prof. Cecilia Leal’s group in the Material Science and Engineering department here at UIUC starting in June. Emily you will be missed, and we wish you all the best in this next stage of your career.
Mai was awarded the graduate shooting star award at the 2020 Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Conference (CMBE).
Excited to announce that second-year Aliki Kolliopoulos has been awarded a prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship by the NSF! Aliki’s work focuses on using biomaterial strategies to modulate the kinetics of the immune response post-injury as a means to accelerate implant integration and subsequent bone regeneration.
