Chrisoula Toupadakis, BS (PhD candidate in Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology)
Her research interest is in bone regeneration. For more details see her webpage
Jessica Morgan (Dual Degree: DVM/PhD Candidate in Comparative Pathology)
Jessica studies the cellular mechanisms through which bone cells adapt to their mechanical environment and ultimately protect against fracture. For more information on her research see the mechanotransduction page (coming soon).
Ehssan Ghassemi, BS (Master's student in Comparative Pathology)
Jen Symons, MS (PhD student in Biomedical Enigneering)
Jen is a graduate student researcher and lifelong equestrian. She is interested in equine athletic performance and injury prevention. Her dissertation research is focused on differences in racehorse limb dynamics on different racetrack surfaces.
Tiffany Sarrafian, BS, DVM (PhD student in Comparitive Pathology)
Tiffany recently completed her equine surgical residency at UCDavis. She is currently pursuing research involving muscle regeneration.
Vanessa Dahl, BS (Masters student in Animal Science)
Vanessa is currently working on a project that compares wear pattern in racehorse shoes to see if there is a difference in the wear between different surfaces. Her future goal is to determine if hoof conformation and characteristics can be used to predict injury in horses. Her study interests are horse hooves and their health.
