Yesterday the Fischell Department of Bioengineering held its first ever graduate student-faculty retreat. It was a great day filled with excellent talks by graduate students, team-building activities, and career talks by faculty. All 4 PhD students in the Stroka lab gave presentations on their current research. Congratulations to 4th-year PhD student Mary Doolin, who won the award "Best Student Presentation" at the retreat! Mary's talk was about her novel fabricated micropillar device for confining cells in three dimensions.
