Badylak Lab Student Honored by Society for Biomaterials
Tim Keane is a graduate student in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Pittsburgh. His research projects in the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine laboratory of Stephen Badylak, DVM, PhD, MD, involve investigating the role of decellularized extracellular matrix (ECM) in limb and muscle regeneration, specifically the tissue remodeling response to ECM that has been subjected to various degrees of decellularization.
Mr. Keane’s paper entitled, “A Biomaterial Strategy for Treatment of Ulcerative Colitis,” has been nominated as an outstanding contribution to the Society for Biomaterials’ 2015 Annual Meeting, Charlotte, North Carolina, April 15-18, 2015. The Education and Professional Development Committee of the Society has awarded him with an Honorable Mention STAR (Student Travel Achievement Recognition).
Congratulations, Mr. Keane!
