CBIR researchers Mindy Ezra and Laura Struzyna traveled to Atlanta to present at the Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) Annual Meeting held from November 10-13, 2013. Dr. Ezra - a postdoctoral fellow in Doug Smith's Lab - presented a poster on "Development of Transplantable Tissue Engineered Nerve Grafts Consisting of Stretch-Grown Axons From Swine." Ms. Struzyna - a Bioengineering doctoral candidate in D. Kacy Cullen's Lab - had an oral presentation entitled "Tissue Engineered Grafts Accelerate Peripheral Nerve Repair By Direct Axon-Induced Axon Regeneration." Ms. Struzyna also had a poster presentation on "Restoring Brain Circuitry Using Micro-Tissue Engineered Neural Networks", which was selected as a Poster Award Finalist. Way to go Mindy and Laura!
