June 12, 2017 –  Dr. Cheng and collaborator receive a R21 grant from NIH to develop biomaterials for inducing immune tolerance. We thank NIH for supporting our research.

May 23, 2017 – Diana has successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis! Congratulations! She is the first Ph.D. student graduated from our lab. We appreciate her contribution to the lab and wish her a very successful career in the future.

April 18~20, 2017 –  Dr. Cheng co-organized “Materials in Immunology” symposium in 2017 MRS Spring Meeting. The symposium focuses on both fundamental and translational researches in biomaterials-based immunoengineering. Dr. Cheng and Zhiyuan gave talks in the symposium.

April 10, 2017 – Dr. Cheng gave an invited talk in the Department of Biomedical Engineering  at Tufts University.

April 4~6, 2017 – Dr. Cheng co-organized Biomaterials for Immunotherapy Symposium in 2017 ACS Spring Meeting in San Francisco.The symposium attracted world leaders in the field to present their recent researches.

The Clinical &Translational Research Institute (CTRI) at Drexel University renewed our pilot grant to develop immunotherapies. We highly appreciate the support from CTRI.
