Celebratory Send-Off for Dr. Quinton Smith

Tuesday, the Gerecht lab went out to dinner at Blue Agave for Dr. Quinton Smith’s celebratory send-off! After completing his PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in our lab, he is heading to Dr. Sangeeta Bhatia’s Laboratory for Multiscale Regenerative Technologies at MIT! Our lab will sorely miss his dedication, mentorship, and humor.  While we say adieu for now, we… Read more »

Congratulations REU Fellows

Congratulations to Danielle Zamalin, mentored by doctoral student Eugenia Volkova and Nicole Zambrana-Garcia, mentored by doctoral student Bria Macklin, for your successful completion of the INBT REU experience in the Gerecht Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering Lab.  The poster and oral presentations today in the Johns Hopkins Career, Academic and Research Experiences for Students (CARES) symposium were fantastic!

Zhao is MSCRF fellow

Zhao awarded MSCRF fellowship to use his new self healing hydrogels for vascularizing constructs using hiPSCs. Congratulations!!

Congratulations Rebecca Brody
