Welcome Sandra!



Mid-SURE Poster Meeting

July 2019

Kayla presented her first research poster in title 'A Comparison of the Physical Properties of Different Concentrations of Silver-doped Bioactive Glass Coated on Metal Substrates' to conclude the summer internship at the EnSURE Program. 
Well done Kayla!


July 2019

Natalia's first peer-review article in title 'Resurreccion of Antibiotics that Methicillin-Resistant Sthaphylococcys aureus Resists by Silver-Doped Bioactvie Glass-Ceramic Microparticles' is now published in Acta Biomaterialia. Check it out by following this link and don't forget to share it with your peers. 
Congratulations Natalia!


June 2019

The Biomaterials Lab team knows how important it is to bring the youngest minds in STEM and so, we contribute in outreach programs and summer camps across campus. This week, Natalia assited Dr. Per Askeland in Grandparents university in the use of different microscopy techniques. 


June 2019
