Although Taku has already left, his work still leaves a legacy. He presented "Different Biodegradation Rates of Tissue-Engineered Vascular Grafts in Small and Large Animal Models".
Congratulations to Joe Boktor for winning the Dean’s Undergraduate Research Awards (DURA) ($4500) for his project proposal "Development of 3D Bio-printed Cardiac Tissue Patches using Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Derived Cardiomyocytes and Biopolymer Hydrogels". From https://krieger.jhu.edu/research/undergraduate/dura/: The Dean’s Undergraduate Research Awards (DURA) are designed to promote independent research projects among our exceptional undergraduate students ...
Congratulations to Isaree Pitaktong for receiving the JHU Summer Training And Research Program (STAR) funding for Summer 2018 for her proposal "3D Printing Vascularized Cardiac Tissue Constructs"!
Great catching up and hope everyone had fun yesterday, looking at the fishes while enjoying New Orleans delicacies (12/9/2017)! Spot the sturgeon. The spelling of sturgeon is surgeon with an extra T.
While we are all sad that Takuma is leaving, we are grateful for all his contributions to our lab and happy that he is going back to clinical cardiac surgery. We wish him all the best!
We welcome our newest postdoctoral research fellow, Dr Hiro Matsu, from Japan!
Congratulations to Chin Siang for his oral presentation "Cardiac Remuscularization using 3D Bioprinted Cardiac Patches" at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2017 in Anaheim, California!
