Dr. Sinem Tas, MTP Alumni, has received a prestigious Marie Curie ERS/EU Respire3 grant from European Respiratory Society (ERS). ERS/EU Fellowship provides an opportunity to early career investigators to boost their careers in basic, translational and clinical research.

This 2-year fellowship will allow Dr. Tas to develop 3D printed functional distal lung tissue using smart hydrogels. Dr. Tas will conduct her research in the group of Dr. Darcy Wagner (Lung Bioengineering and Regeneration Group) at Lund University in collaboration with MTP Group.
