Graduate Student Spotlight

Video: Biomaterials research targets knee injuries

Bioengineer Natasha Hunt '22 is staying at Lehigh to continue her work in The Chow Lab as a graduate student. The team is designing 3D scaffolds to address osteochondral defects in the knee. Hunt discusses her work on "modular biomaterials," which hold promise in helping repair injuries at the interface between bone and cartilage.

Bridge design students tackle real-world challenge

Student team RVTT Engineers won the best bridge design award as part of Lehigh’s Bridge System Design Class, which included PhD, master's, and undergraduate students. The class competition was based on the new NY-NJ Goethals Bridge and the students' designs were reviewed by engineers who worked on the span.

An optimal education for systems improvement

Working on real-world projects through Lehigh's Enterprise Systems Center gave ISE master's student Giavanna Tabbachino ’21 ’22G practical experience and professional mentorship that prepared her to make an impact as a quality systems engineer in the electronics industry.
