Congratulations to Dr. Takehiko Ichikawa on publications with the Dr. Shigenori Nonaka. Beautiful work on live imaging of mouse embryo during gastrulation (PLoS One, pubmed) and description of digital light sheet microscopy applications for mouse morphogenesis (Nat. Protocols, pubmed).
Strong showing at the BMES Cellular & Molecular Bioengineering Special Interest Group meeting in La Jolla, CA. Melis Hazar (co-advised with Dr. Phil LeDuc at CMU and Dr. Bill Messner at Tufts) spoke about her investigation of Xenopus tissue morphogenesis using microfluidics. Callie Miller and Deepthi Vijayraghavan presented posters on their work on computation models of actomyosin and Xenopus neurulation, respectively.
