I wanted to be a part of this program as soon as I read the RFA (request for application) for the Bridges to Stem Cell Research Grant from CIRM. Many of the skills that CIRM hoped students would gain through a Bridges Program were already being taught or planned to be taught through Biomedical Engineering courses. Therefore, this grant program provided an opportunity to harness existing department resources and expertise, and to partner with other departments on campus to develop a comprehensive degree program that prepares students for careers in the burgeoning field of regenerative medicine.

Additionally, my research interests include cardiovascular regenerative medicine, which you can read more about at my lab website.

For aditional information, please visit my department homepage.
