Outstanding Women in Science Seminar Welcomes Sarah Heilshorn

Spring 2017’s Outstanding Women in Science Seminar (OWiS) Series is hosting Sarah Heilshorn, PhD, Associate Professor of Material Sciences and Engineering at Stanford University for a seminar on March 28th, 2017.

Spring 2017’s Outstanding Women in Science Seminar (OWiS) Series is hosting Sarah Heilshorn, PhD, Associate Professor of Material Sciences and Engineering at Stanford University for a seminar on March 28th, 2017. Dr. Heilshorn’s group uses biomaterials for regenerative medicine to engineer proteins and tissues. Currently, her lab is working on stem cell tissue engineering for spinal cord and blood vessel regeneration. Her lab also uses microfluidics to aid in directed cell migration for such therapies. More information regarding her work can be found on the HeilshornBiomaterials Group website.

Sarah Heilshorn. In addition to her contributions to the field of biomedical engineering and regenerative medicine, Dr. Heilshorn has been recognized as young investigator and innovator. She has earned the CAREER award from National Science Foundation. She has mentored students at all levels, from undergraduates to post-doctoral scholars. OWiS Series selected Dr. Heilshorn for her excellence in research and mentorship and her invaluable insights into career progression for women.

Everyone is welcome to attend the seminar on Tuesday, March 28th, titled “Synthesizing functional biomaterials through protein engineering.” The seminar will be held in Chemistry building room 101 (CHEM 101) at 11:00 a.m. Right before the seminar we will have a “Coffee Hour Meet & Greet” with Dr. Heilshorn from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. in Education Building room 133 (EB 133). This will be an informal breakfast with the speaker and a good opportunity to network with her. OWiS welcomes everyone to attend the coffee hour.

This OWiS Seminar Series is sponsored by the Department of Chemistry, the Graduate School, and the Office of Post-Doctoral Education.
