AIChE 2018 Annual Meeting

Session Organizer. Dr. Guvendiren organized and chaired a session on "Bioprinting of Scaffolds, Tissues and Organs" during AIChE 2018 Annual Meeting.


Podium Presentations. Dr. Chya-Yan Liaw and Shen Ji (PhD Candidate) presented their studies. Dr. Chya-Yan's talk was titled "3D Printing of Hydrogels with Spontaneous Formation of Solvent-Induced Patterns". Jorge Pereyra (CHE BS 2018) was a co-author in this work. Shen's presentation was titled "Bioprinting of Large-Scale Hydrogels with Built-in Vascular Channels". This study was co-authored by Emily Almeida (CHE BS 2018). In addition, Guluzar Buyukoz (2018 Independent Study Student, PhD Candidate in Prof. Dave's group) presented her work on "Additive Manufacturing of High Drug Loaded Extended Release Tablets via FDM 3D Printing".

Undergradute Students Contributed to the NJIT Distributed Technology Museum !!!

Dr. Guvendiren developed a Design Challenge Project for the undergraduate students in his course on 3D printing offered in Fall 2017 semester. In this project, students were asked to design and 3D-print a special stand for a historic dynamometer. The printed stands were evaluated by Profs. Robert Barat (Chemical Engineering Department) and Elizabeth Petrick (History Department). Click to read the full story.
