International students applying in the Fall: applications should be received by February 1 in order to process the acceptance by April 1; Spring: applications should be received by July 1 in order to process the acceptance by September 1.

US applicants applying in the Fall: applications should be received by June 1; Spring: applications should be received by November 1. If applying for assistantship, apply by international student deadlines.

BIOMEDICAL ENG. at UConn deadlines:
http://www.bme.uconn.edu/application-procedure.php
For Fall admission, complete application packages must be received by the last day of February for International students, and by the last day of April for Domestic students.

For Spring admission, complete application packages must be received by the last day of October for both International and Domestic students.

We’re now looking for highly motivated, creative and self-initiative individuals to join us as Ph.D. students. For further information or to apply (please attach your CV), please contact Asst. Prof. Savas Tasoglu (tasoglulab@gmail.com). The candidate must have a recent BS or MS in Bioengineering/Biomedical/Mechanical/Electrical Eng., or a related discipline. Lab website: https://tasoglulab.net

Tasoglu Lab (T-Lab) specializes in applying micro and nano-scale technologies to problems at the interface of medicine and engineering. Main research areas are:
1. Bottom-up tissue engineering: Tissues are made up of repeating functional units. Bottom-up tissue engineering aims to assemble mm-scale hydrogels as building blocks to form organized 3D tissue constructs with spatial control over micro-architecture mimicking native tissues.
2. Bio-space research: T-Lab is interested in levitating particles (hydrogel blocks, cells, etc.) to understand biological events at the microgravity settings.
3. Self/directed-assembly of building blocks for complex material fabrication: Self-assembly occurs from molecular to planetary scale. We’re interested in both self- and directed- assembly of microparticles to create heterogeneous materials.
4. Bio-fluidics / micro-physiological system engineering (both analytical and experimental): T-Lab is interested in developing: (i) computational fluid dynamic models of transport of particles across complex tissues, and (ii) platforms to experimentally study micro-physiology.
