Steve Ho, a graduate student in the Leach Lab, has received a Whitaker International Fellowship to do research next summer (2013) at the Institute for Biomechanics at the  Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ). At the Institute for Biomechanics, he will be in the Skeletal Tissue Engineering Group working under Professor Ralph Müller and Dr. Sandra Hofmann. Steve’s project involves customizing an advanced bioreactor with a flow sensor to be able to continuously adjust fluid flow rate in order to maintain a constant optimal shear stress felt by mesenchymal stem cells seeded on a silk fibroin scaffold.
