Engineering biomaterials, culturing tolerance. Holly is an MD/PhD surgical resident with Duke Plastic, Maxillofacial & Oral Surgery who joined us as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab. She brings to the Segura Lab a breadth of clinical knowledge, including transplant surgery, lymph node mapping, skin grafting, and abdominal, breast, and extremity surgery. Her interests include tissue engineering, reconstructive microsurgery, and transgender health. She completed her MD and PhD at Emory University, focusing on cellular immunology, chemical biology, and mesenchymal stem cell therapy. Holly pursued her undergraduate at Harvard University, where she concentrated in Chemistry with a secondary field in Romance languages (Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan). Her lab skills include synthetic chemistry, stem cell therapy, flow cytometry, and mammalian models of skin-antigen signaling. Holly has led partnerships with clinical researchers in Plastic Surgery, Immunology, Pathology and Transplant, as she aims to develop biomaterials for reconstructive skin grafting and transplantation tolerance.
