Dr. Cheng is elected to be a Fellow of the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE)

This honor is in recognition of a scientist’s distinguished contributions to and leadership in the field of medical and biological engineering in an international level. http://www.iambe-ifmbe.org/ Way to go, more to come…

Thanks to Advanced Science News for highlighting our work on a new antibody therapy redirecting stem cells from the lungs to repair heart injury!

Link: Paper highlighted was published on Advanced Science: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/advs.202002127

Congrats! Jhon’s paper is published in Stem Cell Translational Medicine with a beautiful cover image!

https://stemcellsjournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/sctm.19-0167 Our new paper highlights the potential for clinical translation of our novel lung spheroid cell (LSC) therapy for treatment of pulmonary fibrosis in a pre-IND study demonstrating their safety and efficacy. Congrats to Jhon!

Congrats to Kevin! Our new paper in Science Translational Medicine on “Off-the-Shelf” acellular patch for cardiac repair is now available online! With a fantastic cover image.

https://stm.sciencemag.org/content/12/538/eaat9683 Patches embedded with microparticles encapsulating cell-secreted factors improve cardiac repair after acute myocardial infarction in rodents and pigs.

Congrats! Zhenhua’s work on platelet microparticles for cardiac repair is published on February Issue of Science Advances with a fantastic cover image.

https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/6/eaay0589.full We found that the platelet microparticles could successfully bind to injured animal heart tissue, protecting heart muscle cells from cell death and inducing cardiac tissue repair.
