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 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!
Congratulations to Michael Blatchley, our recent recipient of the NHLBI F31. We are very proud and excited!!!
Zhao awarded MSCRF fellowship to use his new self healing hydrogels for vascularizing constructs using hiPSCs. Congratulations!!
Congratulations to Rebecca Brody, a junior from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, for winning second place at the National Junior Humanities and Science Symposium. Her work entitled, “The Effect of Hypoxia on Stem Cell Derived Endothelial Cells,” was ranked as one of the best in the biomedical science division!
Quinton successfully defended his thesis “Elucidating the Roles of Physio-Chemical Cues in Determining Endothelial Fate and Function from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells”
Congratulations to Songnan Wang and Rebecca Black for winning the Johns Hopkins Provost’s Undergraduate Research Award (PURA)!
