Chemical engineering student receives second place poster award at AiCHE Annual Student Conference

Chemical engineering student Alexander Gagliardi received second place at the AiCHE Annual Student Conference in Salt Lake City. Gagliardi's project, "Modular Tissue Engineering with GAG-Chitosan Hollow Complex Fibers," explored regenerative medicine and the use of cells to rebuild tissue.

"Congratulations to Alex G. for a very competitive award," said Howard Matthew, professor of chemical engineering and materials science and Gagliardi's research mentor. "The work and creativity paid off. Next stop, a published paper!"
