Rowan BME engineers are creating nanofibers—with lasers

Dr. Vince Beachley, an Associate Professor in BME, and his team recently received a $523,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to research and refine their methods to create innovative nanofibers with laser over the next three years.

Rowan BME has a strong presence in the 2021 TechConnect Conference

The annual TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo highlights research advances from organizations and universities all over the world, but the event is much more than a strictly academic conference.

“The TechConnect conference is a matchmaking opportunity for researchers who can showcase their innovations and meet potential investors,” said Dr. Tabbetha Dobbins, Rowan University’s interim vice president for research. “Presenting at TechConnect is a good way to get exposure and network. Researchers and innovators can greatly broaden their reach with one event.”

Rowan Engineering research aims to create self-healing materials

Drs. Sebastián Vega and Nichole Daringer, Assistant Professors in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, were awarded a $250K grant from NSF to study regeneration of cartilage.
