Class of 2011
Education: BS and MS in Biomedical Engineering
Aubrey applied to the CIRM program because she has always been interested in the cutting edge field of stem cell research and tissue engineering and their vast potential as a therapy. Aubrey is interested in working to treat diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or peripheral artery disease. From the internship, she hopes to gain enough experience to enter a PhD program and continue researching.
After graduating, Aubrey lectured for 2 quarters at Cal Poly before obtaining Design Assurance Engineer position with Sadra Medical, working to improve the consistency of tissue-based heart valves.
