The National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students to pursue a graduate degree in NSF-supported STEM disciplines. Dammy's proposal was recognized with an Honorable Mention! This Honorable Mention acknowledges his notable accomplishments as an undergraduate student and great potential as a graduate student. Congrats, Dammy!
Lesley gave a seminar in the Department of Chemistry at City University of New York (CUNY) College of Staten Island (CSI). She enjoyed meeting with faculty, seeing the campus, and learning about their exciting research. Thanks for the invitation to share our latest research! On the same day, Nicole Malofsky and Reilly Callahan represented the... Continue Reading →
Bioengineering undergraduate students Ivan Spann and Sydney Yang were awarded Grants for Experiential Learning in Health (GELH) funding from Lehigh to conduct research in the Chow Lab this summer. Ivan will be working on spatiotemporal 3D printed constructs and Sydney will continue her previous research on supramolecular hydrogels. Excited to have you both around this... Continue Reading →
This post is a wee late... We have two new undergraduate students in the lab this semester! Annie Behre is a Bioengineering junior who was recently awarded a prestigious Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholarship to conduct research in the Chow Lab. (Note: Divya Patel and Kelly Seims are also Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholars!) Annie's project involves... Continue Reading →
We were recently awarded a grant through Lehigh's Critical Research Equipment Fund (CREF) to acquire an automated microwave peptide synthesizer for our lab and others across Lehigh. This new instrument will significantly speed up research progress and improve our synthesis capabilities while saving valuable time and resources. Many thanks to Lehigh and those who helped...

Reilly Callahan presented a talk titled, "Investigation of Dynamic Self-Assembling Hydrogels Based on Glycosaminoglycan-Peptide Hybrid Molecules for Regenerative Tissue Engineering Therapies" at the 2018 MSE Undergraduate Research Symposium at Lehigh. She won a prize for 'Largest Scientific Impact'! Special thanks goes to Dr. Amanda Krause for organizing such a successful event. Congratulations, Reilly!
Kelly Seims sang with Lehigh University Choral Arts at the annual Christmas Vespers in Packer Memorial Church. Amazing program and beautiful voices to start off the holiday season. She had some fans in the audience 🙂
The Chow Lab went out for brunch to celebrate the end of the semester! Our holiday party included snow, yummy food, and a white elephant gift exchange (aka stealing presents from each other). It was very fun to hang out outside the lab before the holidays. Thanks for a great 2017 and here's to an... Continue Reading →
Hafiz (Dammy) Busari and Peter presented posters at the 2017 New Jersey Center for Biomaterials (NJCBM) Symposium in Iselin, NJ on Pharmaceutical Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine : From Concept to Manufacturing. Dammy's poster titled, "3D Printing with Peptide-Polymer Conjugates to Create Spatially Organized Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering" and Peter's on "Determination of Mechanical Properties for...
