2017- Anjelica Gonzalez at Science on Saturdays

Today’s engineers can not only build better mouse-traps, they are also figuring out how to build better mice - and people. Join us on November 11th to hear Prof. Anjelica Gonzalez describe how she and other biomedical engineers are using the techniques of tissue engineering to provide better diagnostic tools and develop cures for challenging human ailments.

Time: Demonstrations by Synapse of Yale Scientific Magazine from 10am - 11am; Talk from 11am - noon. 

Location: Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, 225 Prospect Street
Directions & Parking: Sterling Chemistry Lab is the building on the left of the driveway at 225 Prospect. Proceed into the main entrance and up the main staircase. Parking will be available on the street along Prospect, at the Yale Whale Ice Rink, and in Lot 16 at the corner of Whitney & Humphrey.

About Anjelica Gonzalez: Anjelica Gonzalez’ research is focused on the development of biomaterials for use as investigational tools, particularly for the investigation of immunological responses to inflammatory signals from endogenous and exogenous sources.

Gonzalez has a dedicated interest in training the next generation of scientists to think interdisciplinary and approach problems form a scientifically global perspective. With a mutli-disciplinary approach, the Gonzalez lab combines organic chemistry, molecular biology, mathematics, computational modeling and image analysis to develop and use biomedically engineered scaffolds to dissect the chemo-mechanics of immunological processes. This work has special significance to an array of diseases and disorders, including atherosclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and sepsis.
