Gates Summer Intern
Department of Biomedical Engineering
University of Oklahoma
Hello, I’m Emily Thomas, and I am a junior in the University of Oklahoma’s biomedical engineering program. As an undergraduate member of the Oklahoma Translational Regenerative Medicine Lab I have contributed to the development of a hydrogel designed to promote neuron regeneration. This summer as part of the Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine Summer Internship Program, I have had the opportunity to join the Magin Lab. My project is focused on characterizing bioinks for the 3D-printing of blood vessel mimics to model pulmonary hypertension. Outside of lab I love hiking, biking, and basically anything outdoors.
