BMES Presentations

September 28, 2013: A trio of REU students – Stephanie Knowlton (advised by David Shreiber), Jose Hawayek-Carrera (advised by Martin Yarmush and David Shreiber), and Daniel Tekverk (advised by Jeffrey Zahn) – traveled to Seattle to present their research at the annual BMES meeting.

Summer Symposium

July 31, 2013: The Cellular Bioengineering REU students celebrated their summer-long research experience at the end-of-summer symposium. Students presented posters that summarized their research and pitched business plans to their fellow REU students from partner programs in Physics, Green Energy Technologies, Structured Organic Particulate Systems, International Environmental Sciences, Pharmacy, and the umbrella Research in Science and Engineering (RiSE) program.

Applications Available

The Rutgers-NSF REU in Cellular Bioengineering

Rutgers is the home to a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site on Cellular Bioengineering -- From Biomaterials to Stem Cells. This program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and was established as a pipeline activity of an IGERT training program in the Integrated Science and Engineering of Stem Cells under which it ran from 2003-2009. The REU program serves a diverse population of students to whom cutting-edge research experiences are not typically available and thus broadens the pipeline to graduate school for a wide range of students. The current program is led by Professors David Shreiber (PI) and Charles Roth (co-PI) and has operated as an REU since 2010, successfully providing research opportunities and professional development to four cohorts totaling 39 students. With an intellectual focus in Cellular Bioengineering, this program provides research opportunities that articulate with a range of cutting-edge, multidisciplinary areas, including stem cell engineering, systems and computational biology, cell-active biomaterials, and micro/nanoscale biosystems. The research experience is complemented by weekly exercises aimed at professional development. Currently, the program has a strong emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship, and shepherds the students through the process of creating a business plan centered around the research projects.
