Congratulations to the Magin Lab (Duncan Davis-Hall, Cassandra Petrou Chelsea Magin and Donald Campbell) for finishing the PH in the Park 5k together this weekend! This is an incredible event that brings together pulmonary hypertension (PH) patients, their families, friends and caregivers with physicians and researchers to raise awareness and funds to find a cure. Check out their website here.
Our lab was not only honored to hear the stories of PH patients but is also thrilled to have received one of the 2019 Colorado Pulmonary Vascular Disease Research Awards! These funds raised at the 5k event will support our research into 3D bioprinting pulmonary vascular mimics to help us study PH using human cells.
Duncan Davis-Hall is a talented Bioengineering PhD student working on this project. He came in first in his age group and second overall in this race! Congrats, Duncan. Keep up the hard work both in and out of the lab!!
