NSERC PGS D - Congratulations Brenden!


The Hoesli Lab is happy to announce that one of our PhD candidates, Brenden Moeun, has been offered a Postgraduate Scholarship (PGS) from NSERC! Brenden’s project looks to generate tissue engineered constructs for type 1 diabetes cell therapy. His design looks to mimic the dense blood vessel network found around physiological pancreatic islets while also providing immunoprotection (shown above). Brenden plans to fabricate these artificial tissues using emerging 3D printing techniques.

Le labo de Prof. Corinne Hoesli est heureux d’annoncer que Brenden Moeun, candidat au PhD, a reçu une bourse d’études supérieures du CRSNG! Le projet de brenden vise à produire des constructions tissulaies pour la thérapie cellulaire du diabète de type 1. Son objectif est de recréer l'irrigation dense retrouvée autour des îlots pancréatiques dans leur environnement naturel, tout en en assurant l’immunoprotection (figure ci-dessus). Brenden va utiliser les technologies d'impression 3D de pointe pour la bio-fabrication.
