Nick Ciulla, undergraduate student working in our group, has been awarded with prestigious scholarship! Congratulations!
Nick has been awarded with the CHI Healthcare Fellowship to extend the research he initiated in melt electrospinning writing process this summer to the following Fall and Spring semester. His aims to use the MEW process for the engineering of an in vitro blood-brain barrier model.
William Boettcher has been awarded the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Summer Research Scholarship for the summer of 2017! Congratulations!
William's project, Electrophysiological Biocomputer, extends his 2016 I&E and CHI fellowship project 3D Printing a Tissue Based Electrophysiological Model with a focus on the computational application of synthetic nervous tissue.
William Boettcher was selected to participate in the 2017 ICFNJ undergraduate research symposium. Congratulations Will!
His submission, Effect of Scaffold Conductivity on Nerve Tissue Growth and Function, seeks to develop an empirical basis for the production of better synthetic nerve grafts as a robust, tunable, and high-fidelity in vitro model of nervous tissue.
A recent highlight from our scaffold fabrication method ! 3D scaffolds with cellular-relevant dimensional features can be used for a wide range of Tissue Engineering applications.

Prof. Robert Chang is the symposium co-chair of the "Advances in Additive Biomanufacturing of Tissues and Multiscale Engineered Tissue Constructs", part of the Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference, June 27 - July 1, 2016!
Filippos Tourlomousis was invited to present his computational work on 3D in vitro microfluidic culture models in the "3D Cellular Models", part of the World Preclinical Congress that took place June 14-17, 2016 in Boston, MA! Congratulations!
William Boetcher & Andrew Harris have been recommended as finalists in the Student Manufacturing Design Competition (SMDC) organized by MSEC 2016 (Blacksburg, VA)! Congratulations!
William and Andrew are undegraduate students at Stevens and members of the BMBM lab. Their entry was related to the to the design of a high performance PID-controlled thermoelectric print bed. They have been invited to give a technical presentation of their prototype in the upcoming ASME Manufacturing Science and Engineering conference (MSEC 2016)!
Houzhu Ding has been invited to present his paper in the upcoming ASME Manufacturing Science and Engineering conference (MSEC 2016). The conference will be held in Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, USA! Congratulations!
