Saengow named Beckman postdoctoral fellow
Beckman’s postdoctoral programs support outstanding scientists by providing selected scholars a unique opportunity to engage in a three-year fellowship of interdisciplinary research at the Beckman Institute.
Saengow was named a Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellow, along with: Catherine Applegate (Wawrzyniec Dobrucki, BioE; Pengfei Song, ECE); Saadia Chaudhry (Joaquín Rodríguez-Lopéz, chemistry; Charles Schroeder, ChBE), and Nathiya Vaithiyalingam Chandrasekaran (Daniel Llano, MIP; Pengfei Song, ECE). Julian Cooper (Nancy Sottos, MatSE; Philippe Geubelle, aerospace engineering) was named a Beckman-Brown Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellow.
Saengow earned his PhD in chemical engineering at Queen’s University, Canada, in 2016. Through his project, “Designing Highly Printable Fibrin-based Bioinks,” he expects to uncover the rheological and microstructural fingerprints of highly printable fibrin-based bioinks with optimum cell viability. The findings could have broader implications for bioprinting of skin, muscle, and complex tissues, as well as stimulate the development of a bioprinting platform with built-in magnetic field and guide other bioink development. He will collaborate with professors Randy Ewoldt and Amy Wagoner Johnson.
