Bioengineering undergraduate alumnus James Moon has been awarded the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine Young Investigator Award.
Moon received his B.S. degree in Bioengineering in 2002, and went on to complete his Ph.D. in Bioengineering at Rice University in 2008. His doctoral thesis under the guidance of Prof. Jennifer West was focused on the development of synthetic biomimetic hydrogels for vascular tissue engineering applications. He is currently a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The award is designed to recognize outstanding achievements by members of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) who is in the early stages of a career in regenerative medicine.
