Emily Cady

Emily Cady Project:Biomaterials for regenerative medicine

Emily is working for Megha on her project to develop a model that uses biomaterials to mimic the native intestinal tissue topography in vitro and to enhance the growth of intestinal stem cells on these substrates. She is helping Megha to understand their behavior, and finally to understand drug diffusion/delivery studies through these cells. She is pursuing her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering.

Jordan Harris

Jordan Harris Project:Computational modelling of the intestinal drug delivery environment

Jordan is studying the effect of food components on delivery rate of drugs in the stomach and intestine. This includes performing permeability testing to assess absorption profile of drugs across a cell monolayer mimicking the intestinal wall.

Kieran Halligan

Kieran Halligan Project:Biomaterials for regenerative medicine

Kieran is working in conjunction with graduate student Megha Kamath to develop a model that uses biomaterials to mimic the native intestinal tissue topography in vitro and to enhance the growth of intestinal stem cells on these substrates. His main job is to aid in the development and testing of potential biomaterials and maintaining cell cultures.
