We were thrilled to see that an illustration from Janet’s recent publication in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering was chosen as the cover art for the November 2010 issue. This particular illustration is originally from co-author Sophie McKenney, who was
Jane was elected to the College of Fellows for the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
We extend a warm welcome to new PhD students Alex Arevalos, Patrick Connell, and Matthew Sapp. We also welcome back Brandi Scully, who decided to stay in the lab for one more year to complete an MS in Bioengineering.
Congratulations to lab alumni Libby Stephens and Jerome Saltarrelli. Their manuscript, “Differential proteoglycan and hyaluronan distribution in calcified aortic valves“ was accepted for publication in Cardiovascular Pathology. Lab member Jit Nandi is also a co-author.
Lab alumni Janet Barzilla and Libby Stephens received work that 2 of their manuscripts were accepted for publication. Janet’s paper, Design and validation of a novel splashing bioreactor system for use in mitral valve organ culture, will be published in
Congratulations to our lab alum Libby Stephens. Her manuscript, “Mitral Valvular Interstitial Cell Responses To Substrate Stiffness Depend On Age And Anatomic Region” was just accepted for publication in the journal Acta Biomaterialia. Graduate student Chris Durst is second author
Congratulations to our lab alum Dr. Janet Barzilla. Her manuscript, “Organ Culture as a Tool to Identify Early Mechanisms of Serotonergic Valve Disease” has just been accepted for publication in the Journal of Heart Valve Disease.
Jane will be the the recipient of the 2011 A. J. Durelli Award from the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM)! This award recognizes younger members of the Society for “significant, innovative contributions of new techniques in experimental mechanics” made early
