Dan Shiwarski, PhD is a post-doctoral fellow in the RBG lab who recently was awarded an NIH NHLBI K99/R00 in August of 2021 on the “Development of a Collagen-based 3D Bioprinted Microfluidic Platform for Vascular Tissue Engineering and Disease Modeling”. Congratulations Dan on this amazing accomplishment!
Congratulations to Annie Behre for being named a graduate research fellow through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). We are so proud!
Jaci Bliley is awarded the Society for Biomaterials Tissue Engineering Special Interest Group Student Abstract Award. Her abstract, which she submitted to the World Biomaterials Congress, is titled “Modeling Load-Induced Disease Phenotypes in Human Engineered Cardiac Tissues with Patient Specific Desmoplakin Mutations.”
ACS Scholars are undergraduate seniors who embody the University’s high standards of academic excellence, volunteerism, leadership and involvement in student organizations, athletics or the arts. The winners of the ACS Scholars program are carefully selected each year by deans/department heads from across Carnegie Mellon. Congratulations Sanjana, click here to read more!
Congratulations to Xining Gao, an undergraduate researcher in the RBG group, who has received the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GFRP). Xining is a dual major in Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Material Science Engineering (MSE), who will graduate in May 2020, and plans to continue her education after graduation as a PhD student in BME. We are so excited to see what she will accomplish!
The Feinberg Lab is awarded a grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Bioelectronics for Tissue Regeneration (BETR) project for the repair of volumetric muscle loss. The Feinberg lab will work in collaboration with labs from Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Northwestern University, the University of Vermont, the University of Wisconsin and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to generate the Regenerative Electronics Platform through Advanced Intelligent Regulation (REPAIR) patch, designed to help regrow fully functional muscle tissue.

Jaci Bliley is awarded a Presidential Scholarship through CMU’s Presidential Fellowship Program, which is intended to award excellence and encourage impactful research by Ph.D. students.
Jaci received 1st place for “Best Oral Presentation” at Biomaterials Day at Case Western Reserve University. Her talk was titled “Perfused 3D Printed Collagen Tubes Support Tissue Viability.”
Congratulations to Dr. TJ Hinton for receiving his PhD in Biomedical Engineering. His dissertation is titled “Rapid Prototyping Tissue Models of Mammary Duct Epithelium.” TJ has received a number of awards and recognitions as a PhD student in the group including the Bertucci Fellowship from the Carnegie Institute of Technology. His research has been published in Science Advances, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering and Current Opinion in Biomedical Engineering. TJ is continuing his career as a postdoctoral fellow in our lab, supported by a prestigious Swartz Innovation Fellow to help commercialize our 3D bioprinting FRESH technology.
Congratulations to PhD student Ivan Batalov, who has been award a prestigious Bertucci Graduate Fellowship in the amount of $20,000. This fellowship was created through the generosity of John and Claire Bertucci and it was established to provide merit fellowships to graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees in Engineering in CIT.
