Congratulations to several undergraduate students in the lab who received scholarships to perform research in the lab this summer. Michelle, Xiaofan, and Moussa all received NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs); David received a UROP Summer Researcher Award; and Kathak received an award from the Dentistry Summer Student program.
Congratulations to Kristine, Cindy, Zahra, Xiaofan, and Jan, whose paper “The elastic properties of valve interstitial cells undergoing pathological differentiation” was published in Journal of Biomechanics.
Our undergraduate researchers showed exceptionally well at Undergraduate Engineering Research Day (UnERD), with Meena, Michelle, Mike, Vanessa, and Xiaofan all doing outstanding presentations and earning high praise for their talks and posters. Xiaofan was awarded best oral presentation in his session, and Meena, Michelle, and Mike all were runners-up in their poster sessions. Congratulations!
