Gulmina Imran

In 2020, Gulmina graduated with a General Certificate of Education in A-Levels from Cambridge University with an Outstanding Learner Award from the British Council for ‘Best Across 4 AS Levels in North Pakistan’. She has previously worked in medical camps and Darakhshan, a non-profit organization for Women With Disabilities (WWD) and hopes to integrate her past experiences into research. She is also a Women Deliver Young Leader and actively advocates for  human rights, specifically health and economic rights. She is currently a Sophomore at NJIT for B.S in Biomedical Engineering with minors in Applied Mathematics and Grand Challenges Scholars Program and is a Dean’s List Scholar.

Danna Valentina Sanchez Hernandez

Undergraduate student pursuing a bachelor of science in Biomedical Engineering, minoring in business at New Jersey Institute of Technology. In 2021, She graduated the international baccalaureate diploma program at Vermont School, Medellin, Colombia. She obtained with merit the Cambridge ICE certificate. In 2019, she completed a Zoology academic exploration program at the John Hopkins center for talented youth of John Hopkins University. Her past research experience revolves around animal rehabilitation and biomedical and dermatological simulators at CES University in Medellín, Colombia. Currently she’s focusing on hydrogels applications and biomaterials with Dr. Miri’s PhD student (Elvan Dogan).

Mert Kanik

Mert Kanik is Pd.D. student at New Jersey Institute of Technology, NJ, USA in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He graduated from Dokuz Eylul University, Turkey and he completed his master’s degree at İzmir Institute of Technology, Turkey in 2019. His master thesis was related to admittance control in robotics. He joined the Miri Lab in 2021. Mert’s field of work is hydrogels, hydrogels and drug delivery and the necessary handheld devices for drug delivery with hydrogels. In addition to these, he leads the projects of undergraduate students and guides them.

Hoda Fattel

Hoda Fattel is currently a Masters student  in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology, NJ, USA. She completed her Bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, USA. Her research focuses on three-dimensional bio printing to combine cells and biomaterials such as hydrogels with the aim of imitating natural tissue characteristics. She has always been fascinated by the vast progression of biotechnology, and she hopes to make major positive impacts in the field.

Anant Bhusal

Anant Bhusal is currently a PhD student at Rowan University, NJ, USA at the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Rowan University, New Jersey, USA. He completed his M.Sc. from The University of Memphis, TN, USA in 2018 and his undergraduate degree from Kathmandu University, Nepal in 2011. His research focuses on materials and manufacturing based on three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting, especially bioprinting of hydrogel-based microfluidic platforms for high throughput screening. Mr. Bhusal’s M.Sc. thesis was on 3D printing of thin polymeric tubular structure for vascular application, and his other responsibilities revolved around 3D printing of bone scaffolds. Besides, he is involved in several research projects related to mechanical engineering and its application in the biomedical field.
