  1. To all those interested in these topics, I kind of wanted to discuss interests related to these three topics. I applied to PhD programs in BME and MSE in order to conduct research in these fields. I sadly haven't actually done research in these areas, but I have taken classes in biomaterials, biosensors, biology, and regulatory affairs for medical devices. Because of this, I found out that these fields were a great combination of my undergraduate degree (materials science and engineering) and my love of biology. I hope to work with polymer (or polymer-based) scaffolds for tissue regeneration applications. However, I was wondering if anyone has any experience in these fields and any other research avenues/options that are done in these fields. I want to explore other things I could do with these fields since I have very little hands-on experience. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all! I just got my Bachelor's in May, and am in the process of applying to PhD porgrams starting in the Fall 2019. I decided to take a gap year so I could focus on applying and hopefully obtain some additional research experience. I am having a rough time finding research opportunities, however. I have been searching since February, and one of the reasons I didn't find anything because most programs started during the summer and I was traveling then. Do any of you know of short-term research opportunities lasting 6 months or so? My background is in materials science and engineering, but I want to focus my PhD research in biomaterials and tissue engineering, which means I am applying to a lot of biomedical engineering grad programs. I appreciate any help! Thanks so much in advance!
  3. I was admitted to both with no funding and as a non-resident. It looks like UW would be the better financial decision if I can find a TA-ship (full tuition waiver vs. half-waiver at UCSD with a TA-ship), but I'm also getting the sense that UCSD tends to make the MS-to-PhD transition easier and that it might be easier to find a TA position at UCSD. Does anyone have any information about whether it's really difficult to find a TA position at UW (the admissions site suggests so) and if I'm correct in thinking a UCSD MS may give me a better shot at getting into the UCSD PhD program down the line? Also, does anyone know how coursework compares between the two programs?
  4. Greetings, fellow TheGradCafe-dwellers! I will be applying to doctoral programs as an international student this year, for Fall'18. I have a Bachelors in Biotechnology from India and a Masters in Biotechnology from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering. While at Penn, I gathered a semester's worth of lab experience in an epigenetics lab and an organ-on-a-chip lab each. I also went through a summer internship at the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) during which I worked with CRISPR and TALEN gene editing in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and I later joined NYSCF after Penn as a Research Associate II to work with iPSCs to study demyelination in multiple sclerosis. I will have had two years' worth of research experience at NYSCF when I start a program in Fall'18. Through my education and lab experience, I have become interested in the use of stem cells to study human disease, specifically those involving the brain, and also possibly using tissue engineering in the whole scenario. More recently, I have thought about taking a crash course in Python so I can consider studying neural networks as well. Even though the use of stem cells + tissue engineering to study the brain is a very narrow niche, it makes it difficult to choose a suitable doctoral program- BMS/ Neurobiology/ Tissue Engineering ? I am currently eyeing schools on both coasts, over California, New York, Boston, DC, Philly and Chicago. It would be great if current students/ veterans in any of the fields could help me out by pointing me towards some good programs with relevant coursework and a collaborative research environment. Thank you!! Tanya
  5. Which school do you guys think is better in regards to tissue engineering? look forward to opinions!
