Hodjat's new paper in Scientific Reports

Our new paper "Functional compartmentalization in the hemocoel of insects” was published today by the journal Scientific Reports (which is Nature’s open access journal). In my opinion, it provides a new standard for understanding hemolymph pressures in insects, and is a very nice piece of work. Dr. Hodjat Pendar is the lead author, and this paper represents work he started as a Ph.D. student in the lab. Ph.D. student Khaled Adjerid and former lab undergrads Caroline Schoenewald and Jessica Aviles are also co-authors. (Jessica is now in the Ph.D. program here in biomedical engineering). Congrats everyone! Here's a link to the paper: For your

Mariam at NIST for a summer internship

Congratulations to lab undergrad Mariam Hasan, who was accepted into a NIST internship today! Mariam will be doing research under David Goodwin at the NIST Engineering Lab this summer in Gaithersburg, MD. The title of her project will be "Weathering of fiber-reinforced polymer composite retrofits used in buildings and infrastructure."
