Breanna Borys

PhD Candidate in Biomedical Engineering


Research interests

Breanna's research focuses on optimizing expansion protocols to overcome the engineering challenges in moving from bench-scale static culture methods of growing pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), to using large stirred suspension reactors. PSCs have the unique ability to transform into any cell in the body when subjected to specified environmental conditions. They are invaluable in studying disease and gene functions and can be differentiated for potential use in transplantation.
