Schmidt Lab members Dr. Becky Wachs, Chase Cornelison and Chris Lacko attended the Regenerative Medicine Workshop at Hilton Head, SC. All three members presented posters on their research and Chase was also selected to present his work orally as part of the rapid fire session. There were many great contacts made with well-known engineers and scientists, including Dr. Robert Nerem (one of UF BME’s former Distinguished Leadership Seminar Speakers). Dr. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, another former UF BME Leadership Speakers was the keynote “Nerem Lecturer” for the Hilton Head conference. Dr. Joel Collier, a former Schmidt Lab member who is now an Associate Professor at the University of Chicago was also one of the keynote speakers. In addition to great science, everyone had a chance to enjoy the beautiful location and beaches!
