Dr. Shaochen Chen has received a four-year $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a “rapid multimaterial bioprinting” platform for building patient-specific biomimetic heart tissue.

Congratulations to Dr. Shirley Meng for receiving the Charles W. Tobias Young Investigator Award from the Electrochemical Society.

A team headed by Nano Chair Joseph Wang and ECE Professor Patrick Mercier revealed a groundbreaking new wearable sensor that tracks and records both EKG heart signals and lactate levels in real time.

Congratulations to Dr. Lipomi for winning this honor, given annually to an exceptional educator at the graduate level. A ceremony for the GSA awardees will be held 4:00pm on April 27th at The Loft.

Congratulations to Dr. Luo for this distinguished honor. Recognition of his achievement will be given at the ACerS Honors and Awards Banquet, to be held on October 24, 2016, at the Society's annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Presented by the Office of Naval Research to recognize promising early-career academic scientists, Nano Prof.

A team led by Nano Professor Shaochen Chen, working with UC San Diego Medicine and Bioengineering Professor Shu Chien, has printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's structure and function for use in patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency grant is intended to develop new skin-wearable systems that can rapidly and efficiently detect and remove chemical and biological agents. The project, led by Nano professors Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang, aims to provide better understanding of how chem-bio a

For the second year in a row, Dr. Joseph Wang has been named a Highly-Cited Researcher by leading news organization Thomson Reuters due to the number of citations his work has received from fellow researchers.

Using hollow 5 micrometer-wide cones, the Wang and Esener labs have shown how ultrasound-triggered explosions can shoot drug-packed nanobullets deep into diseased tissue.
