Saha Lab (with an optional subtitle: Human stem cell engineering)
What is your industry?
What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?
Working at the cutting edge;
Some aspect of biology or engineering - cells, genes, legos
What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
I am very particular about the font, if there is any text. In the following, see some examples of logos in my field - with my particular likes/dislikes. LIKES (see two shared files): https://www.23andme.com/ - clean and evokes chromosomes/genes || http://openmhealth.org/ - clean || https://www.michaeljfox.org/ - clean and abstract || http://www.stemcellnetwork.ca/ - dynamic and includes a symbol of what it's about
http://stemcellfoundation.ca/blog/ - playful and colorful ||
http://www.hsci.harvard.edu/ - like the font ||
http://biobricks.org/ - evokes the DNA double helix ||
http://igem.org/Main_Page - integrates both biology and engineering ||
http://mcdevitt.gatech.edu/ - seems like a cutting edge lab, though the icon seems large ||
http://www.broadinstitute.org/ - evokes the DNA double helix ||
http://lmrt.mit.edu/ - good font and symbol ||
http://hui.bme.uci.edu/ - clean ||
http://www.cellulardynamics.com/ - clean ||
>>DISLIKES: http://www.stemcell.ucsb.edu/ - too space-age ||
http://www.synberc.org/ - too traditional ||
http://stemcells.wisc.edu/ - too traditional ||
http://zlab.mit.edu/ - could convey more information about what the lab is doing ||
http://www.isscr.org/ - too traditional ||
http://limlab.ucsf.edu/ - seems plain ||
http://web.mit.edu/langerlab/ - too linear ||
http://biomaterials.berkeley.edu/ - seems old ||
Do you have any other info or links you want to share?
The goal of the logo is to excite prospective students, researchers, patients, and industrial partners. ||

Short description of work to be done within the lab ||
There are many diseases for which no cures exist. But even existing treatments need improvement. For example, huge variability exists in patient responses to traditional pharmaceuticals, partly because patients metabolize drugs differently. We need new cures, and they should ideally be personalized to maximize chances of success. ||
Human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are uniquely suited for these purposes. These embryonic-like cells can be derived, now in a standardized manner, from virtually any patient sample - and be matured to make various patient-specific cells or tissues. While human iPS cells capture genetic variation among patients and have potential to make any cell in the body, we still need better control both in time and space over these stem cells. My interests lie in using human stem cells together with emerging engineering methods in material science and synthetic biology. Successful experimentation with these techniques could yield new human disease models to dissect the basic biology of disease and smarter therapeutics and diagnostics for regenerative, translational, and personalized medicine.
