Congrats to Ian and Kartik for passing their Quals! Kartik presented his work on a joint project with April Kloxin’s lab “Understanding Macrophage Interaction in Pulmonary Fibrosis by Utilizing Hydrogel-based In Vitro Lung Model” and Ian received a commendation for his presentation “A Dynamic Lung Model and Airway Approximation for Aerosol Study in Health and Disease”! Congrats to both of you – we can’t wait to see what great things you’ll accomplish during your PhDs!

The enthusiasm from the senior Fromen Lab students was definitely appreciated! They’ve started quite the tradition…
