Feinberg Research
Highlights: Professor Feinberg's lab is developing materials-based engineering strategies to encode information in the 3-D environment of the cell. They are currently investigating the basic properties of engineered ECM and using this to build cardiac, skeletal and corneal tissues. On the basic science side, they are exploring the biomechanics and mechanobiology of engineered fibronectin, laminin and collagen nanofibers. On the applied side, they are merging developmental biology and materials science to build 2-D and 3-D scaffolds that drive stem cells to differentiate and form functional tissues.
Professor Feinberg holds a joint appointment in Materials Science & Engineering. He has published over 20 papers on cardiac tissue engineering and cell-material interfaces in journals such as Science, Nature Biotechnology, and Biomaterials. He is also a recipient of the prestigious NIH Director's New Innovator Award.

Publications
Geyer Research
Highlights: The research of Professor Hartmut Geyer is focused on the principles of legged dynamics and control, their relation to human neuromuscular control, and resulting applications in robotics. His main contributions include the unification of human and animal gait in one theory of legged dynamics, and the identification of sensory feedback controls that power prosthetic legs and provide amputees with human-like leg performance. His research involves developing mathematical and computational models that capture essential problems of locomotion biomechanics and motor control, and building robot legs that translate the model results into rehabilitation technologies. Professor Hartmut Geyer has been the recipient of the EU Marie Curie Fellowship.

Publications
Ho Research
Highlights: The research of Professor Chien Ho is focused on imaging immune responses by MRI using animal models, and on the structure-function relationship in hemoglobin. His major contributions include pioneering the use of MRI to unravel allosteric mechanisms of hemoglobin, and to develop a non-invasive MRI method to monitor immune responses in vivo following organ transplantation.
Professor Ho has published over 300 papers. He was awarded a Gold Medal from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine for his pioneering work in cell tracking by MRI. He is a fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the ISMAR, ISMRM, and AAAS, and is an academician of Academia Sinica.

Email: hollinge @cs.cmu.edu
Biography: Dr. Hollinger graduated from Hofstra University with a Fine Arts degree in 1969. After receiving his D.D.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Maryland, he completed clinical programs at Ft Dix, NJ and Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington, DC in the United States Army. Dr. Hollinger retired in 1993 from the United States Army as a Colonel, after serving 20 years of active duty. From 1993 to 2000 he was a tenured Professor at the Oregon Health Sciences University where he directed the Northwest Wound Healing Center. In 2000, Dr. Hollinger became a tenured professor of Biomedical Engineering and Biological Sciences at Carnegie Mellon. He also served as the Director for its Bone Tissue Engineering Center. In 2014 he was honored with a Professor Emeritus status.
Through his career, Dr. Hollinger has received more than $50 million of research grants. He has licensed technology and acquired several patents. He has over 300 publications on bone biology and grafting, biological factors, wound healing, tissue regeneration, and biomaterials. He received the prestigious Clemson Award in Biomaterials in 2008. Dr. Hollinger enjoys bicycling, cello playing, gardening, reading biographies and autobiographies, and involvement with the wounded warrior program.

Kovacevic Research
Highlights: The main focus of Professor Kovačević's group is on building automated systems for processing and interpretation of biomedical images. To that end, her group both uses the tools already developed in signal and image processing and machine learning as well as develops new tools specifically tailored to the problem at hand. Many of the techniques employed are based on sophisticated signal-processing concepts, such as multiresolution/wavelets and multiscale processing.
Professor Kovačević is a Fellow of the IEEE and the past Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. She is a co-author on three textbooks, all in open access. She has given a number of plenary and keynote presentations worldwide.
