Today the lab hosted ~90 excited young scientists and engineers from the Wheaton High School Biosciences Academy as part of our NSF-funded Program to Enhance Participation in Research (PEPR). The students complete vaccine lessons and homework assignments, then spent the day on campus learning about nanoparticles and other technologies being developed for next generation vaccines and immunotherapies. Thanks to PhD candidate Emily Gosselin for coordinating the visit, to all the lab members helping with the day, and to our visitors from Wheaton. Go Knights!
Congratulations to Dr. Qin Zeng, whose paper has been accepted for publication in Biomaterials Science. Stay tuned for the full paper and congrats to co-authors Dr. Peipei Zhang, Dr. Xiangbin Zeng, and Dr. Lisa Tostanoski. Keep up the good work.
