Congratulations to BS/PhD student, Amanda Pentecost, who successfully defended her doctoral dissertation, titled “Nanodiamond-based drag delivery system for the modulation of macrophage behavior”. Amanda is co-advised by Prof. Yury Gogotsi (MSE) and Prof. Kara Spiller (BMES).
Amanda started her career at Drexel as a BS/PhD student. She joined our group as a STAR student after less than a year at Drexel and continued all the way to her PhD degree, earning MS in Biomedical engineering, doing co-op in China and spending a year in Korea on her way to PhD. She won several fellowships on her way to degree completion (NSF GRFP, Whitraker and Boren).
