About the Ameer Lab
April 2014: Gali Baler successfully defended his thesis on April 9, 2014. Congratulations Gali on getting your Ph.D.!
March 2014: Robert van Lith received a STAR Award from the Society for Biomaterials for his submission to the Annual Meeting 2014. Congratulations!
January 2014: A paper by PhD student Gali Baler got published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B, titled "Electrostatic unfolding and interactions of albumin driven by pH changes: a molecular dynamics study"
November 2013: A paper by former postdoc Elaine Zhang and former research professor Karen Lapidos got published in Artificial Organs, titled "A receptor-based bioadsorbent to target advanced glycation end products in chronic kidney disease"
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
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.
