Andrew Dias

Andrew's research focused on studying the effects of bioprinting on embyronic stem cell differentiation. Through use of laser direct-write, stem cells are printed, and printing parameters and cellular configurations (2D and 3D) are manipulated with the goal of directing cells to desired fates, particularly brown adipocytes. Outside of research, Andrew likes to play ultimate frisbee, tennis, and racquetball, and he also enjoys reading, watching television, and playing the saxophone. 

Andrew earned a PhD in Biomedical Engineering in the Spring of 2015, postdoc-ed at University of Wisconsin - Madison, and now works at Cellular Dynamics International.
