Bioengineering graduate student Ana I. Vargas, PhD’24, was chosen as the runner-up in the Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, & Biotransport Conference (SB3C) Student Paper Competition for the “Morphogenesis, Maternal/Abdominal Health” competition category.
BioE Associate Professors Chiara Bellini and Jessica Oakes received a $3.8 million NIH grant for “Cardiopulmonary Outcomes of Dual Cigarette and E-cigarette Use in Animal Models of Chronic Exposure.” The project will provide scientific evidence in support of data-driven e-cigarette regulation under The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, specifically concerning the health risks of dual combustible and electronic cigarette use.
Yasmeen Farra, PhD’22, bioengineering, focuses research on vascular mechanics – specifically, how chronic disease associated with e-cigarette “vaping” or cigarette smoking influences the structural integrity and functional health of large arteries. Following graduation, Farra took her passion for scientific research to her new role as a scientist at Senda Biosciences, a biotech startup in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She works on the translational biology team to help bring life-changing treatments to patients by harnessing Senda’s platform for fully programmable medicines.
