Congrats to Krishna for her presentation at the Lehigh University Undergraduate Research Symposium!

Krishna Jayaram, an undergraduate researcher in the TGF Lab, hat the chance to present her poster summarizing her research for the past year in our lab at the 2024 Lehigh University Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Congrats to Krishna for her accomplishment and also to Zachary Weiser and PhD student Chiebuka Okpara for their contributions to Krishna’s project!


Krishna Jayaram awarded with the Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Research Award

Congratulations to TGF lab undergraduate student Krishna Jayaram for being awarded the Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Undergraduate Research Fellowship. Her research currently focuses on optimizing an in vitro model of osteoarthritis to recapitulate cartilage degradation under inflammatory conditions. As a CBL scholar, Jayaram receives two years of funding for her UG research as well as conference travel. The funding is offered on behalf of the Henry Luce Foundation and the Rossin College and supports women seeking to study or teach science, engineering, and mathematics. It is awarded to those with excellence and motivation in academics and research during their undergraduate studies.
