Congratulations Amirali for winning the Zweifach Student Travel Awards to the MCS Annual Meeting at the Experimental Biology 2022.
FYI: Dr. Zweifach was a godfather of biorheology, and one of the founders of the discipline of bioengineering itself. Read more here: University of California: In Memoriam, 1999 (cdlib.org)
Join us in congratulating Jim Tronolone for winning the AHA Predoctoral Fellowship (Integrating machine learning approaches to vasculature-on-chip for improved translational outcomes in disease models). This is two-year funding that provides $65,000.
Previously Jim has won BME National Engineering Fellowship and also NSF’s Graduate Research Fellowship. Go Jim!
Congratulations to Christopher Chaftari for his work being featured in the 13th Volume of Explorations: The Texas A&M Undergraduate Journal!
Join us in congratulating Jim Tronolone for giving a superb oral talk at the MPS World Summit on Dec 9. He presented his work titled, “A machine-learned microvasculature optimizes physiological insulin secretion in a vascularized pancreas-chip” Virtual Conference: December 9 2021 — MPS-WS1 (mpsworldsummit.com)
Our lab is extremely proud of Tanmay Mathur! He is the only bioengineer and a graduate student shortlisted as one of four to present his new research platform, “Vascular Organ-Chips made from Blood” and compete to win the “Elaine W. Raines Early Career Investigator Award” given by the American Heart Association’s Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology. All speakers are excellent and have a super bright future. Wishing Tanmay all the best!
FIRST: Living Materials Save the Environment (Laura Rivera Tarazona, Ware Lab)
SECOND: Serendipity (Cardiovascular Pathobiology Lab, Dr. Fred Clubb & team)
THIRD: Representative label-free fluorescence images of cell metabolism (Quantitative Optical Imaging Lab, Dr. Alex Walsh & students)
FOURTH: Gaharwar Lab Bioprinting (Ryan Farrell, Gaharwar Lab)
FIFTH: Small blood vessels forming perfusable networks in a medical device (Jim Tronolone, Jain Lab)
Dr. Jain was selected as a finalist for the prestigious Kenneth Brinkhous Prize in Thrombosis from the American Heart Association and ATVB! He presented our Vein Chip that is making an impact on our understanding of COVID 19 induced blood clotting.
Congrats Dr. Pandian! Check out pictures from our celebration at the Lab Activities page.
