Research Quick Takes
Global Conference on Osseointegration
Hixon Lab member and PhD Innovation fellow (surgical track) Adelaide Cagle attended the Global Collaborative Congress on Osseointegration in Charlotte, NC. Hers was chosen from a large group of abstracts for an oral presentation entitled "Tissue-Engineered Combination Construct for Osseointegration Support" and complimented as one of the best presentations at the conference.
Manuka Honey for Wound Healing
Karina Mitchell '23 is first-author on a paper published in Gels on a standard of practice for incorporating the antibacterial properties of Manuka honey into tissue-engineered scaffolds and evaluating biofilm reduction. Co-authors include research assistant Sreejith Panicker and Calista Adler '26.
Biomedical Engineering Society Annual Meeting
The Hixon Lab attended the national Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA. PhD student Peter Bertone and Research Assistant Sree Panicker gave oral presentations on bone oncology and electrically-stimulated bone formation, respectively. PhD students Adelaide Cagle and Levi Olevsky gave poster presentations on dermal adhesion and craniofacial reconstruction, respectively.
Metastructure-Based Pressure Sensors
PhD students Huan Zhao and Julia Huddy, and professors Yan Li and Will Scheideler are coauthors of "Rational Design of 3D-Printed Metastructure-Based Pressure Sensors" published in Advanced Engineering Materials. The study found that metastructure architecture design can lead to substantial expansion of the sensing range. The practical application of this technology was demonstrated in an undergraduate ENGS 33 bridge project.
Best Paper Award
Professor Vikrant Vaze received the INFORMS AAS Best Paper Award this week at the INFORMS annual meeting in Phoenix. The paper entitled, "Choice-Based Airline Schedule Design and Fleet Assignment: A Decomposition Approach," proposes a "decomposition approach based on partitioning the flight network into smaller subnetworks by exploiting weak dependencies in network structure."
Advancing Sustainable Magnets
The Baker and Hautier research groups co-authored, "The phase transformation behavior of Mn-Al rare-earth-free permanent magnets" published in the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials. Authors include PhD students Thomas Keller and Dylan Barbagallo, and postdocs Tushar Ghosh and Natalya Sheremetyeva, along with professors Geoffroy Hautier and Ian Baker. The study presents an "alternative to high-performance rare-earth permanent magnets for use in electric motors and devices."
Advancing Materials Science
New publications from the Hautier Research Group include "First-principles study of intrinsic and hydrogen point defects in the earth-abundant photovoltaic absorber Zn3P2" published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A and authored by postdoc researchers Zhenkun Yuan and Yihuang Xiong, and Professor Geoffroy Hautier. Xiong and Hautier are also co-authors of "Strong electron-phonon coupling driven pseudogap modulation and density-wave fluctuations in a correlated polar metal" published in Nature Communications.
Prouty Pilot Research Projects
Dartmouth's Center for Imaging Medicine received two $60,000 grants for Prouty Pilot Research Projects: (1) Professors Petr Brůža and David Gladstone, along with PhD student Roman Vasyltsiv and co-PI Lesley Jarvis from the Dept of Radiation Oncology, will analyze Cherenkov light emissions to identify response variations between normal and abnormal tissue; and (2) researcher Arthur Petusseau Th'23 will work with Brůža and co-PI Shane Chapman from the Dept of Dermatology on an advanced imaging system for the early detection of malignant skin lesions, and for guided surgical resection of non-melanoma skin cancer.
