Julianne Holloway received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Drexel University in 2012 and completed her postdoctoral training at the University of Pennsylvania within the Bioengineering Department. Through her research on engineering hydrogels for synergistic biomolecule delivery, she was awarded the National Institute of Health Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Postdoctoral (NIH NRSA F32) Fellowship. Her research interests are in the field of tissue engineering, with a focus on designing materials to mimic the native biochemical and biophysical cues of musculoskeletal tissues and developing a better understanding of the role dynamic biomechanics plays on cellular behavior. Julianne’s research has been recognized through several awards, including: University of Washington’s Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar Participant (2014); Most Promising Graduate Student Commencement Award (Drexel University, 2012); National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship (2009-2012); and First Place in the Society for Advancement of Material and Process Engineering University Research Symposium (2010).

Fallon Fumasi

Fallon Fumasi

Current Program: PhD, Chemical Engineering

Project Title: Cell Signaling for Bone Regeneration

Fallon was born and raised in the small town of Orland, California.  She received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering with an emphasis in Biochemical Processes from Oregon State University in 2014.  While at OSU, she worked with Dr. Karl Schilke on modifying polycarbonate surfaces to covalently attach peptides and characterizing the surfaces using X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS).  She went on to receive her M.S. in Chemistry from the University of Oregon through the Advanced Materials Analysis and Characterization (AMAC) Program in 2015. Here she worked with Dr. Stephen Golledge in the Surface Analytical Facility where she analyzed various academic and industrial samples using XPS, Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy (ToF-SIMS), and Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES).  In her free time, Fallon enjoys hunting, fishing, and playing softball or basketball.
