SarahHeilshornSpring 2017’s Outstanding Women in Science Seminar (OWiS) Series is hosting Sarah Heilshorn, PhD, Associate Professor of Material Sciences and Engineering at Stanford University. 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.

Coffee Hour Meet and Greet: 10:00 - 10:45 a.m., Education Building room 133.

“Synthesizing Functional Biomaterials through Protein Engineering” Seminar: 11:00 a.m., Chemistry Building 101.
