BioE Students Win at Bioscience Day Poster Session

Fischell Department of Bioengineering graduate students Xiaolong Luo (advised by Department of Materials Science and Engineering professor Gary Rubloff) and Varnika Roy (advised by BioE professor and Chair William Bentley) were recognized for their research at the Bioscience Research & Technology Review Day 2008 poster session. Both entered their work in the bioengineering division, which Roy won. Luo received an honorable mention.

Roy's poster was titled "In vitro LsrK: Toward an AI-2 Phosphorylation Nanofactory that Modulates Bacterial Talk." Luo's was titled "Microfabrication and Biofunctionalization of Permeable Vertical Chitosan Membranes in Microfluidics".

Bioscience Research & Technology Review Day is a special event that features research talks, presentations, mini-symposia and demonstrations by university scientists. The program provides a unique opportunity for executives and professionals in industry and government to discover the most recent advances in bioscience and biotechnology at the University of Maryland; to promote the potential for academic-industry-government collaboration; to meet University scientists and interact with graduate student researchers; to network with colleagues who share an interest in the promotion of bioscience and the bioscience industry; and to recruit employees and investigate job opportunities.
