Congratulations to Kaiyuan and Anthony for successful PhD defense!

It has been a busy month in the Stabler lab, with both Kaiyuan Jiang and Anthony Frei successfully defending their PhD theses!

Dr. Jiang defended his dissertation entitled “LOCAL MODIFICATION OF POLYDIMETHYLSILOXANE-BASED SCAFFOLD IMPLANTS TO IMPROVE ISLET GRAFT EFFICACY AND MODULATE HOST RESPONSE”, where he highlighted the important of modulating inflammation within the islet microenvironment.

Dr. Frei defended his dissertation entitled “THE LOCAL RELEASE OF IMMUNOMODULATORY AGENTS IN THE CONTEXT OF ISLET TRANSPLANTATION”, where he highlighted approaches to modulate allograft responses via local release.

Congrats to them both for their successful defense and for contributing so much knowledge to the Stabler lab! We look forward to their future impacts on the field!
