This week, we welcome to the group Angela Appiah-Kubi, who is a rising senior studying Biotechnology at Kean University and will be with us as part of our REU in Cellular Bioengineering. We also welcome Veronica Farag who has recently joined the group. We look forward to her work this coming academic year as she … Read More
Congratulations to all of our Rutgers graduates today and especially to those from the research group: Joseph Farag (M.S., Biomedical Engineering), Himani Chavda (B.S., Chemical & Biochemical Engineering), and Ingy Razouk (B.S., Biomedical Engineering)
Himani Chavda presented her Slade Scholar research on “Evaluating Anti-Biofilm Drug Formulations Under Simulated in vivo Conditions” twice this week. She was one of four scholars selected for oral presentation at the J.J. Slade Scholar Research Symposium on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, she was awarded first place at the Chemical & Biochemical Engineering Undergraduate Research … Read More
Today, Joseph Farag successfully defended his M.S. thesis, titled “A Mechanistic Model to Study Biofilm Structure and Metabolism in Antibiotic Activity.” Joseph will be moving on in the fall to the Ph.D. program in Pharmacy at University of Buffalo. Congratulations!
Kudos to Youssef Mohamed, who was a RISE/REU student with us this summer, on receiving a poster award at AIChE. Very happy that he was able to participate in the conference this year. Great job!
Charlie presented the group’s work on “Polyelectrolyte surfactant nanoformulation of tobramycin for treatment of lung Gram-negative biofilm infections” at the CRS Annual Meeting, held virtually this year. We are looking forward to in person meetings in the coming year.
We welcome two new members to the group this summer. Youssef Mohamed joins us via the RISE and REU Cellular Bioengineering programs. He just completed his sophomore year in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Vanderbilt U. Alexandra is a rising sophomore in Chemical & Biochemical Engineering here at Rutgers who joins us via the Aresty … Read More
Finishing their last 15 months in a pandemic, the Class of 2021 has made it through! Congratulations to all of the graduates, and in particular lab member Joseph Farag, and my senior design team that included Joseph, Johnny Lucas, Mark Ragheb, and Kevin Underwood.
Several new members joined the group during Fall 2019. Ingy Razouk is a junior in Biomedical Engineering, where she is part of the Research Scholars Academy, and is working on nanoparticle PBPK modeling. Joseph Farag is a senior in Biomedical Engineering who is part of the B.S./M.S. program and is interested in mechanistic modeling of … Read More
Our collaborative paper on multiplexed short-wave infrared imaging of tumors has been published in BMC Cancer. Congratulations to Harini and the whole Rare Earth team.
