The UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Department congratulates Dr. Eduardo Silva on being named a 2019 Emerging Investigator by Biomaterials Science.

The Silva Lab paper — “Characterizing the Encapsulation and Release of Lentivectors and Adeno-Associated Vectors from Degradable Alginate Hydrogels” — will be included in a special Emerging Investigators edition of Biomaterials Science, which gathers the very best work from biomaterials scientists in the early stages of their independent careers. 

The 2019 Biomaterials Science Emerging Investigators were individually nominated by members of the journal’s editorial and advisory boards, as well as previous Emerging Investigators, in recognition of the honorees’ potential to influence future directions in the biomaterials field. The journal is published by the U.K. Royal Society of Chemistry.

Dr. Silva’s research efforts focus on the field of translation stem-cell bioengineering, with an overall aim to develop new material platforms that enable one to control stem/progenitor cell trafficking in the body.

Congratulations, Eduardo!
