Publication: “Shrink Wrapping Cells in a Defined Extracellular Matrix to Modulate the Chemo-Mechanical Microenvironment”

Rachelle, John and Amrita are co-first authors on our latest publication on “Shrink Wrapping Cells in a Defined Extracellular Matrix to Modulate the Chemo-Mechanical Microenvironment” published in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering.  This article is part of the 2014 Young Innovator issue and the work will be presented at the 2014 Biomedical Engineering Society meeting in October as part of the Young Innovator Symposium.

Quentin and John have Received the BME Teaching Award

Congratulations to Quentin Jallerat and John Szymanksi for receiving the BME Department’s 2012-2013 Teaching Award for excellence.   They share this award for their hard work as TA’s in the Tissue Engineering course, where they received outstanding evaluations from the students.

Adam Feinberg receives the George Tallmann Ladd Research Award from the Carnegie Institute of Technology

Prof. Adam Feinberg has been selected to receive the 2012 George Tallmann Ladd Research Award from the Carnegie Institute of Technology (College of Engineering) at Carnegie Mellon University.

For 2012… “The George Tallmann Ladd Research Award was given to David Brumley, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Adam W. Feinberg, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and of Materials Science and Engineering. Brumley was awarded for the development of techniques for automatic exploit generation, formal methods and analysis to improve software system security. Feinberg received the award for basic research and technological development of new paradigms toward the facilitation of regeneration of a wide variety of tissues following damage by disease or wound.”
