2009 Research Magazine

The cover of the current issue of WPI Research features Morgan Stanton, a PhD candidate in chemistry and biochemistry at WPI, who works in the laboratory of Christopher Lambert, associate research professor in the WPI Bioengineering Institute, helping develop engineered surfaces that can react with biological molecules and cells.

Lambert is working with Norman Garceau, president and chief scientific officer of Blue Sky Biotech, a tenant in WPI's Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center, to develop an engineered surface that models a human cell membrane capable of holding a protein known as an insulin receptor. If it works, the surface could become a new screening tool to help develop drugs for diabetes. See the story "A Meeting of Minds" for more.
