Collin Kaufman is currently a graduate student at UIUC in Dr. Martha Gillette’s lab, and has been a member of EBICS these past 5 years. Recently, he and a group of his colleagues published a paper in a special issue on Biohybrid Machines in APL Bioengineering. This was a heavily EBICS-driven product with at least 5 current or former members of EBICS being listed as authors.
Since the publication of the paper, the response to this work has resulted in over 20 articles through various channels. The outlets featuring this work include UPI, an AIP (APL publisher) Spotlight, Neuroscience News, Nature Daily Briefing, and ScienceDaily.
The paper is entitled ‘Emergence of functional neuromuscular junctions in an engineered, multicellular spinal cord-muscle bioactuator’ and can be found at this link: https://aip.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/1.5121440
