We want to wish a huge congratulations to our undergraduate researcher, Peter Abraham, who was named a Barry M. Goldwater scholar. Throughout the past several years, Peter has made numerous outstanding contributions to our cancer research projects and is highly deserving of this prestigious award! For more info on Peter’s research and the Goldwater award, check out this news release. This semester, Peter also had his research published in PLOS One, won 1st place at the AIChE Regional Conference Technical Presentation competition, and was elected to serve as the Auburn AIChE Internal Vice President. Congratulations on all of your accomplishments, Peter! We are so proud of you!

Congratulations to Lipke Lab undergraduate researcher Ravi Nataraj for winning 2nd place at the AIChE Regional Conference Poster Competition for his work, “Adaptation of a Microfluidic System for Use in High-Throughput Drug Screening”. Ravi was also recently elected to co-lead the BMES Design Team and will work towards developing a cost-effective, adjustable foot and ankle prothesis specifically targeted to female populations. This design will enable a multitude of shoe options ranging from tennis shoes to high heels! Keep up the awesome work, Ravi!

Dr. Lipke and Nicole recently had the wonderful opportunity to attend and present at the 2022 AACR Meeting in NOLA. We were excited to learn about the newest advances in cancer research, meet with collaborators, and share our work towards developing pathophysiologically-relevant tissue engineered cancer models!
We are ecstatic to announce that Lipke Lab graduate researcher, Mohammadjafar Hashemi, was awarded a 2-year American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellowship for his research studying the link between cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Since being awarded the fellowship, Mohammadjafar had the opportunity to be a guest on the Auburn Engineers #GINNing Podcast. Click here to listen to him discuss his research and his plans for the future. Congratulations, Mohammadjafar!
