Biography

I am an MD/PhD Student in the Davis Lab. My main research interest is the development of new strategies to increase the ability of human cardiac progenitor cells to repair the heart in children with heart failure. Currently, I am investigating how the aggregation of human cardiac progenitor cells into 3D spheroids may recapitulate signaling processes within the natural cardiac stem cell niche to improve cell differentiation.
