Introductory visit to Dr. Oxford's cell culture research lab at Boise State

The past few weeks our team has traversed the beginning stages of our research: engineering design challenge, meetings, new team members in, new team members out, meetings, requirements revision, project timeline development, meetings, and a first visit to the lab where our biologists will be culturing bone cells for our experiment. We've also had some meetings :)  

Check out some inside images and video of the engineers' visit to the life science side of campus:

This is exactly what you'd expect...a microscope (Jake had a hard time figuring out how to use even the more
well known biological devices—he'll stick to computers)!
