Education Background:

  • Certificate in Stem Cell Technology, Madison Area Technical College
  • B.S. Biomedical Laboratory Science, University of Stockholm- College of Health Sciences, Sweden
  • Associate degree Medical Laboratory Technology, University of Stockholm- College of Health Sciences, Sweden
Research Description:

Provide support for the biomaterials and tissue engineering group whose efforts focus on delivering signals to instruct stem cell activity. Manage the cell culture and analysis facilities, as well as, supervise the inventorying of lab supplies. Develop new assays, create cell banks, maintain cells for use by laboratory personnel, assist in the basic development of novel biomaterials, conduct research experiments and assist with lab experiments where needed.
