Harley Lab receives NSF support

The Harley Lab (in collaboration with Dr. Ryan Bailey’s group, UIUC Chemistry) has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (Biomaterials Program). Work funded by this award will develop benzophenone-based photopatterning approaches to create biomolecularly patterned collagen scaffolds for a range of tissue engineering applications.

Welcome Rebecca

The Harley Lab welcomes a new graduate student – Rebecca Lyons. Rebecca joins us after completing her M.S. from the University of Michigan with Dr. Jan Stegemann. Further congratulations for her selection as a NSF GRFP awardee for 2010 – 2013!

Steven’s paper accepted in Biomaterials

Congratulations to Steven Caliari for the publication of a new article, ‘The effect of anisotropic collagen-GAG scaffolds and growth factor supplementation on tendon cell recruitment, alignment, and metabolic activity,’ which will appear later this year in Biomaterials.
