Kudos to UF BME PhD student, Deanna Bousalis, who successfully defended her PhD! Deanna’s research focused on decellularization of several tissues including both nerve and cardiac tissue and creation of injectable decell materials for potential SCI therapeutics. She also worked on electrical stimulation to modulate ASCs and their ability to secrete products (secretome), for combination with injectable decell nerve for SCI.
Thanks to Dr. Bousalis’s committee members: Drs. Peter McFetridge, Edward Phelps, and Prodip Bose.
After leaving UF BME, Deanna will be joining the FDA!
Congratulations to Deanna!
