Current advisor: Rotating in the lab of Kory J. Lavine, MD, PhD
Undergraduate university: Washington University
This past rotation, I worked in the laboratory of Kory Lavine, MD, PhD. We investigated how the immune cell niche changes in the first seven days (highest inflammatory stage) using a myocardial fibrosis mouse model. To investigate this time frame, I used an angiotensin II and phenylephrine infusion system in the mouse model while perturbing the system in a variety of ways to interrogate how the immune cell composition changed.
