Our very own Zack Berent has just defended his thesis today on Cell Seeding and Proliferation. Dr. Zack has been a great addition to the Wagoner Johnson Lab as well as to the MechSE department at the University of Illinois. He was also a great supporter of diversity and of women in science and engineering. Congratulations Zack. We are so proud of the person you have become and we are grateful for the presence of passionate people like you in the science community.
