Dr. Elizabeth Loboa, core faculty in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, and the work of her Cell Mechanics Laboratory team were featured prominently in the Cover Story of the September 14, 2013 New Scientist. The article (page 33), titled “Rebuild your body,” gives an overview of the growing use, and importance, of extracellular matrix in state-of-the-art tissue regeneration. Dr. Loboa’s particular contribution to this exciting new thrust in tissue healing is a matrix application that not only promotes regeneration but also elutes powerful anti-microbial agents capable of suppressing even the most resistant infectious agents.
