Research Description

I am interested in the fields of stem-cell biology, engineering design, and tissue engineering to create physiological relevant models of neurologic disease. Human pluripotent stem cells enable the creation of engineered platforms that allow for reproducible, high-throughput studies that aid epidemiological and animal model disease research. In the Ashton Lab, I hope to study the developing neural tube and neural tube defects utilizing one such platform.
