New paper in Lab on a Chip by Hazar et al. Demonstrates novel application of microfluidics to “etch” multilayer composite tissues. Narrow streams bearing etchants can cut though single cell layers or can create broad, deep cuts through multiple tissue layers.
Congratulations to Callie Miller on defending her PhD Thesis in Bioengineering, “Identifying essential mechanisms for cortical actomyosin contractions with computational modeling.” Callie is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher with Drs. Timothy Elston, Jason Haugh, and James Bear at the North Carolina State University in Raleigh North Carolina.
