A Real Catch: Rutgers–Camden Alumnus Uses Doctoral Research in Australia to Help Reduce Extinction Threat to Shark Species

A Real Catch: Rutgers–Camden Alumnus Uses Doctoral Research in Australia to Help Reduce Extinction Threat to Shark Species

By Ed Moorhouse First, Jaws made beachgoers think twice before going into the water. Then, Discovery Channel dedicated a weeklong block of summer programming to the predators at sea. Now, sharks are flying out of tornados in wildly inventive made-for-TV movies. Sharks have always seeped into the imaginations — and nightmares — of people everywhere, […]

Cellular Architecture: Rutgers–Camden Students Use 3D Bioprinter to Create Building Blocks for Tissue Generation

By Ed Moorhouse Advances in technology have made it possible to produce bone, muscle, and even organs using a 3D bioprinter, which allows scientists to generate tissue in a laboratory environment. But before that can be done, cellular building blocks have to be created to lay the foundation for the new tissue, and students at […]
