Congrats to Brendan and Bryan Bryson (MIT BE) for receiving a collaborative science supplement to Brendan’s NIH R21 to study macrophage heterogeneity in biomaterials under development for craniofacial bone regeneration. A fantastic chance for our groups to work collaboratively to integrate bioinformatics and biomaterials!
Congrats to Brendan and Sara Pedron for receiving a Alzheimer’s-focused administrative supplement to our NIH R01 in the space of biomaterial models of brain cancer. With support from NCI they will be adapting these cultures to create neurodegenerative conditions!
Congrats to Brendan for being named the Robert W. Schaefer Professor in the Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois.
Congrats to our undergraduate researchers Morgan Kim, Vincent Cornelius, Diana Slater, Andrey Nosatov, Joshua Scott, and Nathan Petrikas for receiving 2019-2020 Illinois Scholars Undergraduate Research (ISUR) fellowships. This highly competitive program provides research funds for individual projects and is a testament to the great graduate and postdoctoral mentors they have!
Congratulations to Samantha Zambuto who was awarded the 2019 BMES Career Development Award for her work regarding racial disparities in pregnancy and how stress affects trophoblast invasion. The prestigious award aims to “support travel to the BMES Annual Meeting for Graduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, and Early Career Professionals from underrepresented populations in biomedical engineering and/or […]
In May Brendan traveled to Taiwan to spend a week giving lectures and meeting new colleagues as part of him being named the 2019-2020 Next Power Chair Professor in the Dept. of Chemical Engineering at National Tsing Hua University. Great science and many new friends!
Samantha Zambuto received the award during the Dept. of Bioengineering Annual Graduate Research Symposium for her presentation, “A Gelatin Hydrogel to Study Endometrial Angiogenesis and Trophoblast Invasion.”
Samantha was selected as a Mavis Future Faculty Fellow (MF3) at the University of Illinois for the 2019-2020 academic year. This program is designed to facilitate the training for the next generation of great engineering professors and she is following in the footsteps of previous MF3 alumni from the Harley Lab: Mai, Aidan, and Emily!
A large chunk of the Harley Lab members will be attending the Society for Biomaterials 2019 Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA from April 3rd to April 6th. If you are also attending, be sure to stop by any and all of the Harley Lab posters and presentations. You’ll be dazzled and amazed: Wednesday Marley Dewey: […]
