Tania Chan ’13
Studying at Johns Hopkins has given me the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best minds in my field. The close-knit community of the JHU Materials Science and Engineering Department has made my time here tremendously fulfilling, and I have learned invaluable skills that are helping me grow as a scholar and a researcher. The interdisciplinary nature of Hopkins gives me the flexibility to collaborate with researchers across the university.
Tania Chan worked in the lab of Dr. Michael Yu (now at the University of Utah). Her research focused on controlling angiogenesis by creating spatial and environmental cues in natural collagen scaffolds. She graduated from MIT in 2007 with a BS in Materials Science and Engineering and a minor in Biomedical Engineering. She was the recipient of a NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship through the Institute for NanoBioTechnology.
