As a part of the organ reengineering team, I'm currently involved in animal surgery to isolate highly viable rat hepatocytes for use by lab members and hospital researchers. Additionally, I perform rodent liver harvests for projects such as liver recellularization/decellularization. I am also responsible for distribution and monitoring of controlled substances for the CEM. As a member of the CRC, I routinely perform human hepatocyte isolations and cryopreservation. My research area focuses on prolonging the time transplantable human organs and tissues remain alive ex vivo via perfusion techniques and supercooling methods. My goals consist of creating and developing life-saving technologies in the field of transplant surgery.

I develop clinically relevant microfluidic assays to measure neutrophil behaviors and neutrophil and microbial interactions. In addition to studying the healthy phenotypes, I also study these behaviors and interactions in patients (mostly septic, diabetic, and transplant) to create diagnostics, measure drug efficacy, and better understand each disease.

Research: I am part of the Cell Resource Core (CRC) and the organ reengineering team. I perform rodent and human hepatocyte isolations, to consistently provide highly viable primary cells for researchers. I also conduct rodent liver harvests and custom isolations upon request. I am involved in a hepatocyte cryopreservation project and an extended ex-vivo kidney perfusion project, as my research interests lie in rescuing discarded organs and maximizing donor organ viability.

Using whole-liver engineering technique, I'm attempting to reconstruct functional artificial livers with intact vascular structure and biliary tree via recellularizing decellularized liver matrix. This way we hope to improve the quality of marginal donor livers to solve the transplantable liver shortage crisis.
