About the Ameer Lab


July 2015: Another paper by Bin Jian got accepted, this time to Biomaterials, titled "Non-invasive assessment of an engineered endothelium on ePTFE vascular grafts without increasing oxidative stress".

July 2015: Simona Morochnik was selected for the Chemistry of Life Processes Predoctoral Training Program, which provides funding for 2 years. Congrats Simona, a great achievement!

June 2015: Mazen has finished his research fellowship and is mopving to Boston to start as Interventional cardiology fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital. It was great having you in the lab, Mazen, and good luck in this next step!

May 2015: Jian is leaving the lab and moving back to China to pursue his next career steps. Nice job developing new materials in our lab Jian, and good luck!

May 2015: Zdravka is leaving the Ameer lab to pursue a career in industry. You will be missed in the lab, Zdravka, but we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

February 2015: A paper by Bin Jiang got accepted to Acta Biomaterialia, titled "A polymer-extracellular matrix composite with improved thromboresistance and recellularization properties". 

January 2015: Former graduate student Josephine Allen, now assistant professor at the University of Florida, received the prestiguous NSF Career Award! Congrats Josy, fantastic job, we're proud of you! See link

December 2014: Ameerlab research featured in National News Media! Fox News highlights our recent research on ACL replacements.

The Ameer Research Lab, part of the Biomedical Engineering Department, is located on the third floor of the Technological Institute of Northwestern University, right next to the lake on the beautiful Evanston campus.

In our research, we investigate novel in vivo (in the body) as well as ex vivo (out of the body) approaches to assess, replace and/or regenerate tissue function. Towards this goal, we are working on projects that integrate fundamental principles from the areas of biomaterials, tissue engineering, stem cell engineering, drug and gene delivery and biotechnology
