Sydney Yang has been awarded the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship! Sydney is currently a senior in Bioengineering and has been working in the Chow Lab since 2017. This is a well-deserved accomplishment that recognizes her incredible talent and potential. We are so proud of her and excited to see all the... Continue Reading →
Hafiz "Dammy" Busari gave a fantastic MSE Graduate Student Seminar talk on his work titled, "3D Printing with Peptide-Polymer Conjugates to Control Spatial Peptide Concentration". He shared how he can control local cell behavior within a single material by spatially organizing different peptide cues. Cool stuff! Dammy presented with his birthday (and clothing) twin Ally...

Lesley has been appointed the Harold Chambers Junior Professorship in Materials Science and Engineering in recognition of her outstanding accomplishments! Harold B. Chambers had a distinguished career in the steel industry and gave generously to Lehigh's Department of Materials Science and Engineering. His donation has made possible this professorship, given to a promising young member of... Continue Reading →
Rosa is a dogtoral student who joined the Chow and Pashuck Labs in August 2018. She comes to Lehigh from Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR). Her research focuses on squirrels, asking if you are going to eat that, and napping. Welcome, Rosa!
Paula Camacho passed her PhD Qualifying exam this week! Exciting times and major milestone in the Chow Lab. Congratulations! We are so proud of you!
Diana Hammerstone and Sarah Boyer have both been awarded the prestigious Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholarship to conduct research in the Chow Lab. Diana's project focuses on developing solvent-based 3D printing techniques with various polymers to create materials with anisotropic properties. Sarah (joint with Prof. Helen Chan's lab) will be 3D printing metal oxides to fabricate high... Continue Reading →
