08.12.15 Welcome new graduate student! We welcome Shiny Rajan to the lab, who starts as a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering this fall. Shiny comes to us from Arizona State University and will initially be focusing on some of our microfluidic/3D cell culture work.
07.15.15 Undergraduate researcher joins the lab Another undergraduate researcher has joined the lab! We welcome Parker Hambright, an undergrad in Biology here at Wake Forest. He will be working on our microfluidics research.
05.28.15 Undergraduate researchers join lab We will have several undergraduates taking part in the lab's research this summer. Brandi Swain is a biophysics major at Wake Forest and will be working on nanopore related research. Clare Burke is a biomedical engineering major at UT-Austin who will be concentrating on microfluidic systems during her SBES internship. Welcome!
05.15.15 New NIH grant funded The lab has been awarded a new R21 award from the NIH! The grant, funded by the National Cancer Institutes through their Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) program, will focus on measuring DNA epigenetic modifications with solid-state nanopores.
04.03.15 New paper in Langmuir A new publication on nanopore measurements of single-stranded binding proteins with DNA has been accepted and is available now.
02.10.15 CCCWFU Pilot Award We have been granted a pilot award from the Wake Forest Comprehensive Cancer Center to pursue our project, "A modular approach for probing diverse epigenetic modifications in genomic DNA".
02.08.15 Biophysical Society Meeting The group presented its work at the 2015 annual meeting of the Biophysical Society in Baltimore, MD. Always great to interact with nearly the whole nanopore community at once and see the amazing new work they're doing.
02.04.15 Adam receives 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award Adam has been awarded the 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, designed to promote promising young faculty in building their research programs.
