Graduate Students

Johanna Buschhaus is a PhD Candidate in Biomedical Engineering,
BSE 2017, Biomedical Engineering
Johanna is researching cellular interactions within the breast tumor micro-environment at both primary and metastatic sites. Using tissue engineering, molecular imaging, and computer modeling tools to analyze cellular metabolism, EMT, and signaling, she hopes to reduce patient metastases by exploiting the cancer/stromal cell relationship.
