Clinical Product Risk Specialist at Boston Scientific
In my research, I aim to merge engineering principles and 3D printing technology with stem cell biology in order to develop regenerative solutions for damaged heart tissue. I use physical and biochemical cues to manipulate stem cells and cardiac cells outside of the body with the goal of creating tissue that can contribute to heart function after a cardiac event. My work covers a broad range of complexities, from fabricating small micro-scale cardiac patches to 3D printing full organ structures, and utilizes cutting-edge technology to create tissues with precisely controlled, native-like distributions of multiple cell types.
