In light of the recent directives from Office of Research and President Leebron, effective immediately BML will be implementing the following protocols:
1) At this time, no external users (non-Rice users) will be able to use the lab.
2) There will be no in-person interactions between BML staff and users. This includes trainings, as well as in-person assistance with instrument use. All interactions must be remote, and are subject to limitations in our capabilities. For example, we will have no new instrument trainings.
The Biomaterials Lab is proud to present the 3rd annual Biofabrication Workshop. This year, we will introduce new speakers and topics. We'll be welcoming guest speakers from Johns Hopkins University, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Maryland, Rice University and more. Everything from the basics of bioprinting to advanced materials and organoid fabrication will be covered. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in several hands-on training programs in the Biomaterials Lab.
The Biomaterials Lab supports a wide array of training, education, and research opportunities. Much of this is only possible because of Rice's investment into the advanced and unique technologies available at the Biomaterials Lab.
High school and undergraduate students from Mexico City visited the Biomaterials Lab in conjunction with the Health Museum's Innovation Days. The students took part in hands-on demonstrations of various 3D printers, including bioprinters capable of producing tissue engineering scaffolds. They also toured Rice360's NEST space to learn about innovation in biomedical devices for global outreach.
