Jacob is an active member of UB’s chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society, and plans to study tissue engineering in the future. His ultimate goal is to develop a system for the fabrication of complex organs using stem cells, and he hopes that he can use his skills as an engineer to advance the field of tissue engineering and to change the lives of those around him.
