Our first two official PhD candidates!
We are pleased to welcome Yajuan Shi from the ChBE department as a new graduate student in our lab. We are also excited to belatedly welcome Robbie Weinstein as an undergraduate researcher who has actually been with us since the summer.
Voted best poster by the majority of conference attendees. The people have spoken!
We are pleased to welcome Kylie Balotin, a first year graduate student in the BME program!
We have been notified that our grant entitled "A high throughput platform for the selective generation of neurons from stem cells" has been selected for funding by NSF. This project reflects a budding collaboration with Prof. John Wikswo and will explore the use of a novel liquid handling platform for reproducibly controlling the differentiation of iPSCs to neuronal subtypes. We are grateful for this funding and are looking forward to the work!
