John Tolbert passed his qualifying exam! Congratulations, John!
We have been so busy this semester we forgot to update our website! Here are a few highlights so far... Lesley Chow is awarded the NSF CAREER Award to support research and education related to 3D-printed biomaterials: Developing Spatially Organized Biomaterials to Engineer Complex Tissue Interfaces. Read more about it here. Diana Hammerstone and Sarah... Continue Reading →
The Chow and Pashuck labs joined together to celebrate the (almost) end of the semester and upcoming holidays. We enjoyed delicious food, funny stories, and some cheeky gift stealing during our white elephant gift exchange. Very thankful and lucky to have these wonderful and talented people in the lab! Happy and safe holidays to all!... Continue Reading →
Sareena Karim developed a new 3D printing biomaterials activity for first-year RARE students in collaboration with Ben Metz (Bioengineering undergrad and 3D printing extraordinaire at Wilbur Powerhouse), Kelly Seims, Paula Camacho, and Lesley Chow. RARE students learned about biomaterials and teamed up to research, design, and print scaffolds for tissue engineering. Each team presented their design criteria... Continue Reading →
Hafiz (Dammy) Busari submitted his MS thesis titled, "3D Printing with Peptide-Polymer Conjugates for Single-Step Fabrication of Spatially Functionalized Scaffolds" last month and started his new job at PolyMed, Inc. as a Polymer Engineer this month. His thesis was also published as a co-first author paper with Paula Camacho in Biomaterials Science. It's been a... Continue Reading →
Sareena Karim is a rising sophomore majoring in Bioengineering who joined our lab this summer through the RARE program and presented her research at Lehigh's Summer EXPO 2019. Her poster titled, "3D Printing Biodegradable Polymer Scaffolds with Tunable Architectures" showcased her data in collaboration with Chow Lab PhD student Kelly Seims and Tomas Babuska and Prof....
