Professor Ulrike Wegst, Anne Stevens Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been awarded funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) as part of a Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, with component groups at UC Berkeley; UC San Francisco; Drexel University; and Imperial College, London.

The goal of the project is to develop biomaterials for tissue engineering that will eliminate surgical risks and allow immediate return of function. The overall project was funded at $6M for five years and Drexel's portion of the budget is $310,000 for two years, with the possibility for extension.
