Our lab work was listed with other top research groups of cardiac tissue engineering in PNAS (please see highlighted yellow part of the article entitled “The race to patch the human heart”)
Congratulations Cecillia to win Talalay-Gott Award (announced on 6/23/18)!
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”.
The Dean’s Undergraduate Research Awards (DURA) are designed to promote independent research projects among our exceptional undergraduate students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS). These awards, which range from $500 to $4,500, enable undergraduates in KSAS to pursue original research, work closely with a Hopkins faculty mentor, and advance knowledge for the world. Awardees have an entire year to use the funding.
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”!
