McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine is pleased to announce that Timothy Keane, National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the Stephen Badylak Laboratory of the McGowan Institute and a student within the Department of Bioengineering, University of Pittsburgh, will be awarded the 2015 Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Outstanding Student Award during the upcoming 2015 TERMIS World Congress. The 2015 TERMIS World Congress will be held from September 8-11 at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts. The TERMIS-AM Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Outstanding Student award presentation will be conducted on Thursday, September 10th during the Gala Event that will be held at the Museum of Science. The awards presentation (presentation of plaques) will begin at 8:00 PM.
At the award presentation ceremony, Mr. Keane will be presented with a plaque recognizing his outstanding research accomplishments within the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine field. He will also receive a complimentary registration to the 2015 TERMIS World Congress as well as an honorarium of $500 and reimbursement up to $1,000 to be used towards his travel expenses (airfare, hotel) to attend the conference.
Mr. Keane’s award-winning manuscript will be published in the journal, Tissue Engineering, Part A. His research projects 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.
Congratulations, Mr. Keane!
