Biophest 2018 is held by the University of Arizona in Tucson this year. We had a good time thanks to all the inspiring research and great conversation with other researchers. Houpu gave a great talk, and Joshua, Yuan, and Minxi also reported their result in the poster session.
Sierra-Rose Brown presented her work with Yuan and Minxi titled “Electroaxial and topological guidance of dictyostelium discoideum cells” at the Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium in April. Well done, Sierra!
Xiangbing Jiao passed his defense on 3/15, and we held a party to celebrate his achievements. Congratulations, Dr. Xiangbing Jiao!
Mike Darrow joined the group. Welcome!
Xiangbing’s paper on reconciling the flexibility and rigidity of implantable bioprobes has been accepted by Nano Letters. Congratulations, Xiangbing!
We had a blast enjoying each others company, the beautiful weather, and taking in the scenic views Arizona has to offer; South Mountain Park in Phoenix is about a 4 mile hike round trip . And a happy ending to our group outing with a nice family-style meal at Chengdu Delight in Chandler. It’s always …
