Ezra is a PhD student interested in interrogating DNA structures to improve therapeutic drug targeting. He completed his undergraduate degree in bioengineering with a minor in statistics at the University of Maryland, with research experience in bioinformatics. During his free time, he spends his time cooking, working out, and recordkeeping his lifestyle habits.
Meredith is a graduate student pursuing a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering in 2022 at the University of Virginia. During this time, she conducted undergraduate research in Dr. Rebecca Pompano's Lab developing and validating a computational model to predict the spatial resolution of an experimental method for detecting cytokine secretion in lymph node tissue. Her research interests include immunology, tissue engineering, and nanomedicine.
Katherine is a Postbaccalaureate Researcher at Boston University. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Austin, she worked as a research assistant, user experience designer, and nonprofit program manager. In those roles, she developed her passion for biological networks, systems design, and social impact. Now, in BU PREP, she is receiving training that will prepare her for entry into a competitive bioengineering PhD program.
