Special thanks to the STEM-SI Program, Lehigh University, the National Science Foundation (DMR CAREER 1944914), and the Pennsylvania Department of Health... Continue Reading →

Congratulations to Paula on passing her general exam!

Paula Camacho defended her dissertation proposal titled, "Peptide-functionalized 3D-printed scaffolds for osteochondral tissue regeneration" with flying colors! It was exciting to see her work come together and lead up to her final project with equine osteochondral explants. Many thanks to her committee members and close collaborators Drs. Hannah Dailey, Tom Schaer, Susan Perry, and Tommy... Continue Reading →

New publication from Kelly and Natasha!

Kelly Seims and Natasha Hunt published a review paper titled, "Strategies to Control or Mimic Growth Factor Activity for Bone, Cartilage, and Osteochondral Tissue Engineering" in the Bioconjugate Chemistry! Check it out to learn more about how growth factors, growth factor binding peptides, and growth factor mimicking-peptides are covalently or non-covalently bound to biomaterial surfaces. This...
