PhD students Shikhar Mehta and Armin Vedadghavami and undergraduate student Erica Wagner recently travelled with Dr. Bajpayee to present at the 2019 ORS Conference in Austin Texas from February 2-5. Shikhar’s poster was titled: “IL-Ra is More Effective in Suppressing Cytokine Induced Catabolism in Cartilage-Synovium Co-culture Compared to Cartilage Monoculture. Armin’s poster was titled: “Cartilage Penetrating Cationic Peptide Carriers for Applications in Drug Delivery and Imaging of Arthritic Tissues.” Erica’s poster was titled: “Avidin Nanocarriers for Sustained Intra-Discal Delivery of Drugs for Treatment of Disc Degeneration.” Congrats to all!
Undergraduate student Cameron Young recently presented his research at the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) at Harvard University from January 24-26. His poster was titled: “Role of Advanced Glycation End-Products in Age-Related Osteoarthritis Development.” Additionally, he was awarded first place in the Engineering, Mathematics, and Applied Sciences category. Congratulations!
Congratulations to undergraduate student Cameron Young for receiving the $1,000 Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor Award from the Northeastern University Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships for his work on advanced glycation end-products!
