Paul Hopkins defended his Master's thesis, titled "3D in vitro Modeling to Assess Therapeutic Hypothermia as a Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury" on April 24, 2017. In attendance were committee members Christian Franck, PhD, Joseph Crisco, PhD, and Neha P. Raukar, MD, and members of the Franck Lab. Congratulations, Paul!
Starting Jan 2017 the Franck Lab in conjunction with the Johnsen and Xu groups at Michigan, the Colonius group at Caltech and the Hennan lab at Brown will be investigating the finite deformation, time-dependent material response of soft matter due to inertial cavitation.
Franck lab had a great time at SES 2016 and presented the following talks.
1. Mean deformation metrics for quantifying 3D cell-matrix interactions
Authors: Eyal Bar-Kochba, Jonathan Estrada, Jennet Toyjanova, Haneesh Kesari, Jonathan S. Reichner, Christian Franck
Speaker: Christian Franck
2. Microcavitation as a neuronal damage mechanism in an in vitro model of blast traumatic brain injury
Authors: Jonathan B. Estrada, Mark Scimone, Harry Cramer, Paul Hopkins, Carlos Barajas, Eric Johnsen, Christian Franck
Speaker: Jonathan B. Estrada
3. 3D micromechanical characterization of extracellular matrices
