Hi I’m Cassandra and I’m a Master’s student in Bioengineering at the Anschutz Medical Campus. I am currently working on developing a clickable, dynamically tunable hybrid hydrogel platform that allows the manipulation of microenvironmental mechanical properties through a two-stage polymerization process while also maintaining the complex biological composition of the pulmonary ECM to provide a new tool for studying the cell behavior in disease progression in vitro. When I’m not in the lab, I love traveling the world and exploring new places, and playing volleyball at the park with my friends!
