The Schmidt Lab was well represented at the BMES 2021 meeting in Orlando – first in-person meeting in over a year and a half! There were research presentations by postdoc Dr. Eleana Manousiouthakis, postdoc Dr. Jorge Mojica Santiago, graduate student Xander Lim (co-advised with Dr. Kevin Otto), and UG Steven Robles. Eleana and Jorge also presented at the “Meet-the-Faculty Candidate” poster session. They all did fantastic jobs!
The Research Details:
- Dr. Eleana Manousiouthakis: “Photocrosslinkable and Conductive Hyaluronic Acid Hydrogels Using Carbon Nanotubes for 3D Printing”
- Dr. Jorge Mojica-Santiago: “Biochemical Constitution of Injectable Nerve Hydrogels Affect Efficacy for Pre-Clinical Applications”
- Xander Lim: “Electrochemical Characterization of MARTEENI Devices Integrating Sputtered Iridium Oxide”
- Steven Robles (first ever conference talk!): “Development of Hydrogels Using Decellularized Porcine Muscle Matrix and Collagen Blends”
