Craig and Edmond participated in the 2007 BMES conference in Los Angeles

The 2007 BMES conference took place in Los Angeles from September 26 – 29, and Craig and Edmond from the lab were there to participate. Craig (below) gave a sterling lecture on high-throughput mechanobiology, and presented current developments in that area that are being pursued within his own lab. Edmond presented his poster on matrix-dependent adhesion of vascular and valvular endothelial cells in microchannels. Also representing the University of Toronto was Irena Barbulovic-Nad (below) from the Wheeler Microfluidics Laboratory, who presented a poster on her novel work with droplet microfluidics and cell assays.
