Congratulations to Sean Kim for winning an @OrsSpineSection Innovation Award for his work on finite element modeling of bioresorbable cages for tissue engineered intervertebral discs. We are so proud of you! @CornellMAE#ORSPSRS2022
Congrats to lab alum Dr. Jongkil Kim on his paper in @SFBiomaterials Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part A (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jbm.a.37464…), showing that gelation conditions control collagen fiber formation in tissue engineered meniscus. #TeamMeniscus@OrsMeniscus@CornellBME
What have we been doing all year? A LOT! Find out in our 2022 @CornellBME@CornellEng annual newsletter! Featuring our CAMEO orthopaedics engineering center with @HSpecialSurgery in NYC, new staff, faculty research, #DEI efforts, alumni profiles, & more!
Spotlight on @CornellBME@BonassarLab Ph.D. student @Serafina_Lopez4, who’s researching techniques for improving the structure of tissue engineered menisci as replacement for torn or damaged tissue. Also: she hikes, bakes, & has a supercute dog)! More: https://www.bme.cornell.edu/spotlights/
Congratulations to Dr. Steven Ayala for passing his B-exam and successfully defending his thesis titled: “Modeling the Post-Injury Joint Environment for the Investigation of Post-Traumatic Osteoarthritis.” We are so proud of you! #PTOA #Cartilage
Please see our listing of five (5) different undergraduate projects mentored by our graduate students. Projects vary in topic, so be sure to check the descriptions posted under ‘Research Areas.’ Reach out to Dr. Bonassar to express interest!
Alikhan Fidai received a TL1 Training Award from Cornell’s Clinical and Translational Science Center for his proposal titled “Engineering of a Mitochondria Rich Collagen Gel for Intervertebral Disc Regeneration.” The goal of the TL1 Training Award is to support… Continue Reading
Leigh Slyker’s article “Simple synthesis of soft, tough, and cytocompatible biohybrid composites” was recently accepted by the journal PNAS. This manuscript demonstrates the development of stiff and tough biohybrid composites by combining collagen with a zwitterionic hydrogel through simple mixing. This advance… Continue Reading
Jongkil Kim passed his B Exam and received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering. His doctoral thesis was entitled “Enhancing Biochemical, Structural, Mechanical Properties of Tissue-Engineered Menisci and Entheses Using Biochemical and Biomechanical Stimuli”. Congrats, JK!
Serafina Lopez passed her A Exam and received her M.S. in Biomedical Engineering. Congrats, Sera!
