Professor Kazunori Hoshino (PI) received a new NSF grant (NSF #2223957) with a total of $790,267.00 for three years (Start Date: Oct 1, 2022). The project is entitled “A light-sheet microscopy (LSM)-based, spatially-resolved 3D dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) instrument for developmental biology and physiology.” He will work with Professor Jianjun Sun (Co-PI) of Physiology and Neurobiology to create a new microscope system and study the growth and the development of live tissues and organs of Drosophila, zebrafish, and mouse.
Dr. Kazunori Hoshino received an NSF CAREER award (NSF #1942518) for his project titled “CAREER: Biomechanical Signatures in Vertebrate Embryonic Development.” The project aims to investigate a novel biomechanical method to quantitatively assess the status of tissue differentiation and organ formation in key developmental stages of vertebrate embryos. The project starts from July 1, 2020, and the total amount of the award is $500,000 for five years.
BME senior Ariane Garrett has been selected to receive a 2020 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF). Congratulations!
Dr. Kazunori Hoshino has been appointed to the editorial board of Springer Nature Scientific Reports.
BME junior Ariane Garrett, who has been with the Hoshino group since her freshman year, is one of the 496 students selected nationally for the award. Established by the United States Congress, the Goldwater Scholarship is considered one of the most prestigious scholarship for undergraduates in math, natural sciences, and engineering.
Dr. Kazunori Hoshino published a new book “Molecular Sensors and Nanodevices, 2nd Edition” from Elsevier (Published Date: 23rd November 2018).
The book is designed to be used as a foundational text, aimed at graduates, advanced undergraduates, early-career engineers and clinicians.
Professor Kazunori Hoshino (PI) received a new grant from the NSF for $360,000 (Start Date: July 1, 2018). The project is entitled “Micro/mesoscale elastography based on real-time 3D tomography and cantilever force sensing.” He will work with Professor Guoan Zheng (Co-PI) to study a micro/mesoscale robotic manipulation system based on quantitative and reliable information obtained from force sensing and 3D imaging.
The new hoshino lab page is under construction.
