Welcome to Julie Kohn from the Reinhart-King Lab at Cornell University. Julie joined Mechanobiology Lab as visiting PhD student for 12 months, funded through the Whitaker Foundation. At UCT, she will develop computational models of endothelial cell mechanics. These aim at complementing her experimental research undertaken at Cornell University on the stiffening of arteries due to age and sedentary lifestyle, which can lead to atherosclerotic plaque development.
