The Myers Lab celebrated our Spring 2017 academic semester – congrats to Shu, Lei, and Nicole for passing their doctoral qualifying exams, Andrea for publishing her first paper, Frank for defending his doctoral thesis, and Charles for winning the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Collaborative Research Travel Grant. Pictured here (L-R): Andrea Westervelt, Michael Fernandez, Kristin Myers, Shuyang Fang, Lei Shi, Nicole Lee, Frank Yao, and Charles Jayyosi.
Along with our long-time colleague David Elad from Tel Aviv University and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University, we are happy to announce the online release of our Biomechanics of the Human Uterus review article. The article is published in WIRES Systems Biology and Medicine.
The Myers and Hendon Labs congratulate Frank Yao and Yu Gan on their well-deserved doctoral degrees from Columbia University. Yu and Frank pioneered imaging and analysis techniques to quantify collagen fiber architecture in the human cervix. Their work defines cervical anisotropic material properties, helping us understand the mechanical integrity of the cervix during pregnancy.
