Biomedical Engineering Society Conference

Dr. Kristin Fischer, Andrew Howell ’20, and Brahm Dean ’21 recently traveled to Philadelphia to present their research at the Biomedical Engineering Society Annual meeting. Andrew presented his work with Dr. Fischer on fabricating a 3D printed uniaxial stretch bioreactor. This work is supported by a grant Dr. Fischer received from the Virginia Academy of Sciences. Brahm presented his work with Dr. Fischer, Dr. Paul Mueller in Chemistry, and Dr. Trey Thurman in Physics on incorporating zinc into hydrogels to make them conductive for soft tissue regeneration like skeletal muscle.
