John Tolbert, Diana Hammerstone, and Kelly Seims presented at Society for Biomaterials

Late to post this! Diana Hammerstone, Kelly Seims, and John Tolbert presented their latest work at the 2022 Society for Biomaterials meeting in Baltimore, MD in April. Diana presented a rapid-fire talk and poster titled, "Characterizing physical properties of constructs 3D printed with peptide-polymer conjugates." John gave a talk titled, "Characterizing properties of solvent-cast 3D-printed... Continue Reading →

Celebrating Chow Lab Undergraduate Researchers!

Our lab has been very lucky to have fantastic undergraduate researchers that contribute significantly to our research progress every academic year. This year was no different with six undergraduate students from Bioengineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and the Integrated Degree in Engineering, Arts and Sciences (IDEAS) program. Here, we highlight their... Continue Reading →

Congratulations to Kelly Seims on her MS Thesis!

Huge congratulations to Kelly Seims on fulfilling all requirements for her MS degree. Her thesis titled, “Effect of Growth Factor-Mimetic Peptides on Human Mesenchymal Stem Cell Osteogenesis and Chondrogenesis” describes how she developed this new research direction in our group. Stay tuned for future publications on this! We are so proud and thankful to have... Continue Reading →

New publication led by John Tolbert out in Macromolecular Materials and Engineering!

John Tolbert, Diana Hammerstone, Nate Yuchimiuk, and our collaborator Jon Seppala at NIST published a paper titled, “Solvent-Cast 3D Printing of Biodegradable Polymer Scaffolds” in Macromolecular Materials and Engineering! Check it out to learn more about how we characterize our polymer-solvent inks and determine the optimal solvent-cast 3D printing parameters. Learn more about John's work and... Continue Reading →

New publication led by Paula Camacho out in Biomaterials Science!

Paula Camacho, Anne Behre, Matthew Fainor, and Kelly Seims published a paper titled, “Spatial organization of biochemical cues in 3D-printed scaffolds to guide osteochondral tissue engineering” in Biomaterials Science! Check it out to learn more about how our dual-peptide 3D-printed scaffolds drive human mesenchymal stem cell differentiation towards osteogenesis or chondrogenesis depending on peptide organization. This... Continue Reading →
