Fischell Department of Engineering (BioE) graduate student Kimberly Ferlin, co-advised by Professor John Fisher (BioE) and Dr. David Kaplan (FDA), was elected to a three-year term as the Communications Officer for the Americas Branch of the Student and Young Investigator Section of TERMIS, the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS SYIS-AM).

She will be responsible for increasing the online and social media presence of SYIS-AM on networks and sites including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Ferlin conducts her research in both Fisher's Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials Laboratory and at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, where she is an ORISE Fellow. She is currently investigating the impact of cell/substrate interactions on mesenchymal stem cell enrichment, proliferation, and differentiation.

Ferlin joined SYIS-AM after attending a TERMIS conference in December 2011. She plans to attend the Third TERMIS World Congress in Vienna, Austria this fall, and looks forward to meeting SYIS members from the society's worldwide branches.
