Dalecki and Hocking receive UR Technology Development Fund Award

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Diane Dalecki, Ph.D. (BME) and Denise C. Hocking, Ph.D. (Pharmacology and Physiology) received funding from the UR Technology Development Fund for their project titled “Ultra-collagen for enhanced wound healing”. The project aims to advance an ultrasound-based technology to direct collagen fiber microstructure and enhance the bioactivity of collagen hydrogels. Applications of this technology include fabrication of collagen-based wound dressings that promote healing of chronic wounds.

Emma Grygotis presented her latest research at the 2016 Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) held in Minneapolis, MN. Emma presented her poster titled, “Mechanical bioeffects contribute to ultrasound-induced promigratory collagen activity.” Emma is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, and a student member of the Rochester Center for Biomedical Ultrasound (RCBU). Emma’s Ph.D. research is mentored by Professor Denise C. Hocking and Professor Diane Dalecki. Emma was also a recent participant in the Young Scholar’s Conference, Mechanisms of Disease Intervention held in Providence, RI.

Eric Comeau and Denise Hocking present at TERMIS

Friday, July 1, 2016

The latest research from the labs of Professors Diane Dalecki and Denise Hocking was presented at the European Chapter Meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society held in Uppsala Sweden. Eric Comeau presented a lecture titled "Ultrasound as a tool to direct microvessel network formation and morphology." Eric presented another line of his research in a poster titled "Ultrasound fields to non-invasively pattern microparticles in situ". Eric is a doctoral candidate in BME and his research is co-mentored by Professor Diane Dalecki (BME) and Professor Denise Hocking (Pharmacology and Physiology). Additional work from the Dalecki and Hocking labs was presented by Professor Hocking in the poster titled "Therapeutic effects of ultrasound on dermal wound healing in diabetic mice." Dalecki, Hocking, and Comeau are all members of the Rochester Center for Biomedical Ultrasound (RCBU).
