BME Research Symposium
June 20, 2016 at Embassy Suites Newark
Biomedical Engineering will hold a research symposium that features the breadth of biomedical research in Delaware and builds new research collaborations. Faculty from across UD and nearby institutions will present 5-minute overviews of their research and there will be ample time for networking at student research poster presentations. We invite all students, faculty, and external professionals who are interested in and those who currently collaborate with the Biomedical Engineering field to register their attendance. Full and partial registration (free) can be completed at the BME Research Symposium Registration Page by 5/13/2016. Please contact Laura Edmanson (302-831-4578) in the BME office for any questions or issues with registration.
A postdoctoral researcher position in the field of cancer nanomedicine is available in the laboratory of Emily Day, Ph.D. The candidate will develop nanoparticles for treatment of cancer, and test these nanoparticles using in vitro and in vivo models of disease. The laboratory is located at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, and is affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware, as well as with the Center for Translational Cancer Research at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute. More information about the Day Laboratory is available at: http://sites.udel.edu/daygroup.
|Dr. Dawn Elliott’s research shows that tiny non-fibrous regions within fibrous tissue affect behavior as reported in their Jan 4 publication in Nature Materials. Their findings were supported by collaboration with Dr. Robert Mauck’s lab (University of Pennsylvania), and Dr. Randall Duncan. Read More..|
|Jason Gleghorn has received a three-year grant from the Biomechanics and Mechanobiology Program of the National Science Foundation to study smooth muscle contractions that occur in the developing mammalian lung. This research will determine the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying airway smooth muscle contractions and their role in airway branching. Deeper understanding of the mechanisms that cause the growth of the airways is of importance for understanding lung development in general and also for predicting, preventing, and repairing structural birth defects.|
