The Sukhishvili group’s research on stimuli-responsive biomedical soft materialshas been highlighted on the Texas A&M Engineering website. The news article, titled “Rising temperatures: Sukhishvili and team develop novel biomedical soft materials”, provides updates for the group’s research and recent student accomplishments.
Congratulations to Victoria Albright for successfully defending her dissertation! Dr. Albright earned her degree based on her work on “Temperature and pH-Responsive Layer-by-Layer Coatings for the Prevention of Bacterial Colonization.”
Congratulations to Victoria Albright for winning an award at the 2019 ACS National Meeting in San Diego! Her poster on surface modification of nanofibers received recognition from the Colloid & Surface Chemistry division.
Congratulations to PhD student Hanna Hlushko for earning the MSEN Excellence in Outreach Award! Hanna leads a team of undergraduates under the Aggie Research Leadership program, volunteers in Women in Materials Science, and participates in many other outreach activities.
Congratulations to master’s student Adwait Gaikwad for winning a 2019 Outstanding Teacher Award! The Department of Materials Science and Engineering honored Adwait for developing lab experiments and instructions for a new course, MSEN 301: Unified Materials Lab I.
Victoria Albright’s paper entitled “Micelle-coated, Hierarchically Structured Nanofibers with Dual-release Capability for Accelerated Wound Healing and Infection Control” (doi: 10.1002/adhm.201800132) published in Advanced Healthcare Materials has been highlighted on the Advanced Science News website.
Graduate student Hanna Hlushko recently presented her work at the 2018 NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) International Conference in Phoenix, Arizona from April 15th to 19th. Her poster entitled “Antioxidant Copolymers for Corrosion Protection of Aluminum Alloys” was a hit among both industrial and academic experts. During the conference, Hanna volunteered at Mini-camp CORROSION: Opportunities Realized for local high school students.
Department of Materials Science and Engineering has published a short article about Prof. Sukhishvili and Victor Selin recently published papers about fundamental studies of the non-linear growth of polyelectrolyte multilayers.
