Aliki wins the NSF GRFP!

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.

Aliki returns from Drexel University where she worked with Dr. Kara Spiller for a month

Aliki spent the past month collaborating with Dr. Kara Spiller’s lab at Drexel University. During her time there she investigated the effects of mineralized collagen scaffolds on macrophage polarization. This collaboration allows for the combination of biomaterial expertise from the Harley lab with macrophage expertise from the Spiller lab. We are excited to see where this collaboration takes her.
