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 →
Bioengineering undergraduate students Sydney Yang and Ivan Spann presented their summer research at the Grants for Experiential Learning in Health (GELH) Symposium on October 10, 2018. Ivan and Sydney were awarded these grants from Lehigh to conduct research in the Chow Lab this past summer. They both gave great talks that highlighted all their hard... Continue Reading →
Lesley, Paula, and Kelly traveled to Philadelphia on Sept. 7-8, 2018 to attend the Penn Orthopaedics 2018 Cartilage Repair Symposium on "Pushing the Boundaries of Cartilage Repair". Lesley gave an invited talk titled, "Designing Advanced Materials to Guide Cartilage Regeneration" and Paula presented her first poster on "3D-Printed Scaffolds for Peptide-Guided Cartilage Regeneration". These presentations highlighted... Continue Reading →
The Chow and Jedlicka Labs were joined by a fantastic multidisciplinary team of undergraduate students mentored by two graduate students (Dammy and Swetha) during the Biosystems Dynamics Summer Institute (BDSI) Program. BDSI started in 2006 with a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and provides "research training experiences that emphasize the relationships between biology... Continue Reading →
Lesley visited the Springer Nature offices in London to meet with editors from Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Nature Reviews Materials, Nature Biomedical Engineering, Nature Nanotechnology, etc. She was invited by Christine Horejs, Associate Editor for Nature Reviews Materials, to present the Chow Lab's research during the Springer Nature Biomaterials and Bioengineering community meeting. This was a... Continue Reading →
Lesley traveled to Dublin, Ireland to present the Chow Lab's latest data on "Spatially Organized 3D-Printed Scaffolds to Mimic the Osteochondral Interface" at the 2018 World Congress for Biomechanics (WCB) in July. WCB was a huge success thanks to the co-chairs Danny Kelly and Fergal O'Brien and many organizers for their hard work and dedication.... Continue Reading →
