Smart Materials for Tissue Engineering : Fundamental Principles published!

The book, “Smart Materials for Tissue Engineering : Fundamental Principles“, edited by Dr. Wang has been published by Royal Society of Chemistry. The goal of this book is to document the recent advances of the fundamental principles for smart materials in tissue engineering. As an emerging area in materials science, smart materials have achieved tremendous developments in recent years. However, there is no book to summarize the research of smart materials in tissue engineering. This book will fill this gap and try to introduce the new tissue engineering smart materials to a wide range of audiences, from the scientific communities to industrial organisations. Congratulations!

Fundamental Principles

Incoming freshmen check out CBE labs

Students enrolled in the College of Engineering APEX program have kicked off their summer of transition to Iowa State and are spending time in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE). The Academic Program for EXcellence for Engineers (APEX) is an intensive eight-week summer bridge program designed to increase the success rate of incoming multicultural, first-year engineering students who have just graduated from high school. Participants, some of whom are undecided about which engineering discipline to pursue, are exposed to all departments in the College of Engineering through the program.

Dr. Wang presented at Iowa Academy of Science Annual Meeting

Dr. Wang presented his research on “Intestinal Stem Cells Mediated Drug Delivery Treat Ulcerative Colitis” on 128th Iowa Academy of Science (IAS) Annual Meeting Saturday, April 23, 2016 at Grand View University, Des Moines, Iowa.

Appointed as Track Chair of GBC 2016

Dr. Wang is appointed as the Track Chairman for the “Nano Biotechnology” track at the ‘Global Biotechnology Congress 2016 (GBC 2016)’ in Boston, USA from May 11th – 14th, 2016. GBC 2016 is the 4th in the Series which provide a platform for researchers and decision makers in biotechnology to present their latest findings and learn about all the important developments in biotechnology. Many Nobel Laureates and world’s renowned experts will participate in the conference. See you in Boston!

Invited as Editor for Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)

Dr. Wang was invited as Editor for Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Smart Materials Series. Smart materials are materials that respond sensitively to small changes in physical or chemical conditions with relatively large conformation or property changes. Smart materials for tissue engineering are produced by modifying the physicochemical and biological properties of the scaffolds with response to external stimuli to enhance the tissue regeneration. Congratulations~

JBN Increased to 7.578!

The 2013 Impact Factor of Journal of Biomedical Nanotechnology (JBN) has increased to 7.578! It’s another milestone of JBN. Congratulations~

The 2013 Impact Factor of International Journal of Pharmaceutics (IJP) is 3.785. It’s higher than 2012’s 3.458. Congratulations!

Dr. Wang gave a presentation at Omega Chi Epsilon.

Dr. Wang was invited to give a presentation about Intestinal Engineering at Omega Chi Epsilon. Omega Chi Epsilon (or ΩΧΕ, sometimes simplified to OXE) is an American honor society for chemical engineering students. Iowa State University was the second institute to form the chapter in 1932. OXE is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies.
