Congratulations to Esha Chopra, an undergraduate student researcher, who has received the MTech ASPIRE Award to support her research in fall 2023! Great job, Esha, and thank you to MTech for their support!
Congratulation to PhD student Ian Smith, who has been awarded a graduate fellowship from the International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) for his project entitled “A Spheroid Angiogenic Vascularization Microfluidic Device to Replace Metastasis-Based Mouse Models.” This fellowship will provide $15,000 towards Ian's research project over the next year. Congrats, Ian!
Congratulations to Dr. Li Yan and former undergrad researcher Cole Dwiggins, who are co-first authors on a new paper accepted for publication in the journal Bioengineering! Current undergrad researcher Udit Gupta is also a co-author. The paper is titled "A rapid-patterning 3D vessel-on-chip for imaging and quantitatively analyzing cell-cell junction phenotypes" and is an invited article for a special issue titled "Micro- and Nanoscale Technologies in Organs-on-Chip and Drug Delivery Systems." Congrats and great job, team!
