The Stroka lab had great representation at the annual BMES Meeting in Atlanta last week! PhD students Kelsey, Marina, and Becca presented talks, and undergraduate student Thea Ornstein (BIOE '19) presented 2 posters (one on research from our lab and from from her REU research in Robert Mauck's lab at UPenn last summer). PhD student Ariana DeCastro also presented a talk in the design competition with her Capstone Team from Virginia Commonwealth University, and undergraduate student Neal Kewalramani presented a poster from his REU research in Stephanie Fraley's lab at UCSD. Congrats and great job to all!
Dr. Stroka was co-chair of the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Track, and our own department chair Dr. John Fisher co-chaired the entire meeting.
Below is undergraduate student Thea Ornstein with her poster.
