About the Ameer Lab


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

December 2014: Michele Jen successfully defended her PhD thesis : "Investigating the role of Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1) in the context of regenerative medicine for vascular and dermal wound healing". Michele will move back to Dallas to start her career in industry. Congrats Michele, fantastic work and we will miss you!

October 2014: Jian Yang received a postdoctoral research award from the Chicago Biomedical Consortium, nice work Jian!

October 2014: Professor Ameer was named a BMES Fellow for demonstrated exceptional achievement and experience in Biomedical Engineering. Congrats!

October 2014: A paper co-authored by Robert van Lith and Jian Yang got accepted in Biomacromolecules, titled "A thermo-responsive biodegradable polymer with intrinsic antioxidant properties".

August 2014: Robert van Lith successfully defended his PhD thesis : "Developing biomaterials for the attenuation of oxidative stress". Robert will stay on to continue work on antioxidant products. Congrats Robert, great work!

August 2014: Another paper by Gali Baler got accepted, this time in Biomacromolecules, titled "Albumin hydrogels formed by electrostatically triggered self-assembly and their drug delivery capability"

July 2014: Our lab's research on intrinsically antioxidant biomaterials is being highlighted by:,,, bio-medicine.orghealthmedicinet.comsciencenewsline.comR & D Magazine,,, and others.

June 2014: A paper by Gali Baler got accepted in Biomaterials Science, titled "Advanced nanocomposites for bone regeneration"

June 2014: A paper by Robert van Lith got accepted in Biomaterials, titled "Engineering biodegradable polyester elastomers with antioxidant properties to attenuate oxidative stress in tissues"

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
