Alexafluor, the light of our lives. Alex received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from West Virginia University in 2018 before joining Professor Tatiana Segura’s group at Duke University. Her current research focuses on engineering our lab’s iconic MAP scaffolds to study how manipulating material characteristics alters angiogenesis. She aims to use her work with injectable biomaterials to promote the formation of normal vasculature and normalize irregular tumor vasculature. Outside of lab, Alex enjoys cooking fun recipes, fostering cats, and gardening.
