This Spring 2022 two Master's students, Kamiel Saleh and Thomas Caracena, graduated after completing their thesis research in the Magin Lab for Bioinspired Pulmonary Engineering. Here is a note from Thomas about his time in the lab. My time in the Magin lab has been instrumental in my development as a scientist and as an … Continue reading Congratulations, Graduates!!
The Magin lab is headed to SFB! We will be giving five talks at the Society for Biomaterials 2022 Annual Meeting, as well as organizing and moderating two sessions: Engineering the Lung Microenvironment and Translating Engineered MultiCellular Living Systems and Cellular Microenvironments. Chelsea Magin: “Evaluating the impact of exposure to scientific role models and work-based … Continue reading Look for the Magin Lab at SFB!
Our latest paper, a collaboration with Dr. Amy Ryan at the University of Southern California, presents a closer look at the state-of-the-art of iPSC differentiation for pulmonary engineering, offer evidence supporting the power of biomaterials to improve stem cell differentiation, and discuss our perspective on the potential for tissue-informed biomaterials to transform pulmonary regenerative medicine. … Continue reading Engineering Tissue-Informed Biomaterials to Advance Pulmonary Regenerative Medicine
The Magin Lab is thrilled to share our latest publication on hybrid-hydrogels for modeling fibrotic diseases in vitro. This international collaboration was led by Cassandra Petrou and includes colleagues from Lund University in Sweden. It was also featured on the cover of the Themed Issue: Emerging Investigators 2020 of the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. … Continue reading Clickable decellularized extracellular matrix as a new tool for building hybrid-hydrogels to model chronic fibrotic diseases in vitro
We are thrilled to announce that the Magin Lab for Bio-Inspired Pulmonary Engineering is moving across the street to join the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Colorado, Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus! We look forward to setting up the lab in Bioscience 3 and continuing to collaborate with both Pediatrics and Medicine to … Continue reading We’re Moving
Cassandra L. Petrou successfully defended her Master's thesis, titled, "Clickable, hybrid-hydrogels as tissue culture platforms for modeling fibrotic pulmonary diseases in vitro" in Bioengineering today!! She did an incredible job quickly switching over to a remote format. Stay tuned for updates on a publication coming soon!
Chelsea Magin, Assistant Professor of Pulmonary Sciences and Critical Care Medicine, Departments of Medicine and Bioengineering at CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, has been named a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program Award Winner. The NSF CAREER Program is the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award in support … Continue reading Magin receives NSF CAREER award
Precision-cut lung slices are very thin slices of lung tissue that can be kept alive in culture outside of the body and studied as a model for a variety of chronic pulmonary diseases. Unfortunately, slices alone are only viable for about a week, which is not enough time to study disease mechanisms and treatment. The … Continue reading Embedding of Precision-Cut Lung Slices in Engineered Hydrogel Biomaterials Supports Extended Ex Vivo Culture
