Best wishes to our newest alumni, Ms. Boyan Xia - recent B.S. graduate, Dr. James Andorko - newly minted PhD, and Postdoctoral Researcher Dr. Peipei Zhang. All three wrapped up their time in the lab this month. You'll all be missed, and we'll be watching for the best of what's to come...
Good luck and stay in touch!
Congratulations to Josh Gammon, PhRMA Foundation Graduate Fellow, and Arjun Adapa, Fulbright Scholar, whose paper has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part A. Stay tuned for the full article link.

A new paper from the lab is featured on the front cover of this week's issue of Advanced Functional Materials. The work, led by Krystina Hess, DoD SMART Graduate Fellow, uses quantum dots as a tool to study some of the material features important in designing more selective therapies for autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Congrats to Krystina, the other authors in the lab, and our collaborators at the Naval Research Laboratories!

Congratulations to Lisa Tostanoski, NSF Graduate Fellow in the lab, who has accepted a postdoctoral position at Harvard in Dan Barouch's lab. Dr. Barouch directs the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research, focusing on clinical and non-human primate research in HIV and Zika virus. Lisa will join the Barouch lab after finishing up her PhD this year. Congrats Lisa!
