Chelsea Magin, assistant professor of bioengineering, was named the 2019 Educator of the Year from the Colorado Bioscience Association at the annual awards dinner on November 7. The dinner is designed to celebrate organizations, companies and individuals that develop life-saving breakthroughs.
Magin is an active mentor in the Colorado BioScience Institute’s Research Experience for Teachers program and is the principal investigator of the Bio-inspired Pulmonary Engineering Laboratory at the Anschutz Medical Campus. The lab’s research focuses on developing cell culture platforms that accurately and consistently recapitulate the dynamic extracellular microenvironment and complex 3D architecture of lung tissue. Magin also serves as the director of product development for Sharklet Technologies, Inc., where she led a research and development team that designed medical devices that use the Sharklet surface texture to control biological adhesion.
Congratulations to Chelsea for receiving this honor!
