Dr. Elizabeth Loboa was interviewed for the radio show, Radio in Vivo, to discuss her research on using human adipose derived stem cells and human mesenchymal stem cells to create robust bone and cartilage "smart bandages." For the full story and broadcast, click here.
Dr. Elizabeth Loboa was selected to the inaugural class of NC State University Faculty Scholars. This program, created by Chancellor Woodson, is a recognition and reward program for top NC State early- and mid-career faculty as part of the NC State strategic initiative to invest in and retain top faculty. Recipients were awarded based on evidence of their significant achievements in scholarship, teaching, and/or service appropriate to their rank and discipline. For the full story, click here.
Congratulations to Mahsa Mohiti-Asli for her repeat award for the Technical Merit Award at the Nonwoven Cooperative Research Center Industrial Advisory Board Meeting on May 2012 for her presentation entitled Controlled Release Systems Using Core-Sheath Nanofibers for Wound Healing and Tissue Engineering Applications.
CML Researchers gave back by volunteering at Reedy Creek Elementary School during a Family STEM Night event in March 2012. During the event, volunteers helped students and their families find the fun in learning through hands-on activities. Volunteers from CML included Michelle Phillips, Josie Bodle, John Williams, Audrey Charoenpanich, Pattie Mathieu, and Thea Roper. To see pictures of CML in action, click here.
Congratulations to Mahsa Mohiti-Asli who has been awarded the Technical Merit Award at the Nonwoven Cooperative Research Center Industrial Advisory Board Meeting on November 2011 for her presentation entitled Controlled Release Systems Using Core-Sheath Nanofibers for Wound Healing and Tissue Engineering Applications.

Dr. Elizabeth Loboa awarded 3 year grant from the Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center to investigate Controlled Release Systems using Core-Sheath Nanofibers for Wound Healing and Tissue Engineering Applications. The award will initiate August 2010 and run through July 2013.
Dr. Elizabeth Loboa awarded recipient of 2010 Stanford University Distinguished Alumni Scholar Award.
BME core faculty member, Dr. Elizabeth Loboa, receives a 2009 UK-US Stem Cell Collaboration Development Award. The UK promotes the advancement of stem cell research and cultivates effective collaborations between research teams in the UK and abroad in order to accelerate scientific progress and delivery of patient benefits. Dr. Loboa secured this support based on her work in mechanobiology of human adult stem cells with specific emphasis on functional tissue engineering of musculoskeletal tissues using human stem cells and custom, bio-inspired bioreactors.
Dr. Elizabeth Loboa named a recipient of the 2009 Sigma Xi Faculty Research Award.
Sigma Xi is a scientific research society founded in 1886, has more than 500 chapters worldwide, and aims to promote original research and its role in human progress. The Faculty Research Award honors early-career faculty who have shown excellence in their research specialization. Dr. Loboa was recognized for her outstanding work in the areas of Biomechanics, Cytomechanics, and Functional Tissue Engineering.
Congratulations to Josephine Bodle who has been awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship for her proposal entitled Mechanically directed differentiation of adipose-derived stem cells on novel PEA scaffolds towards vascular tissues.
Congratulations to Jennifer Puetzer who has been awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship for her proposal entitled In vivo chrondogenesis of human adipose derived adult stem cells in an injected subcutaneous photopolymerized hydrogel.
