As the first graduate student in the lab, Boya has been involved in nearly every project at some point! Her thesis work focuses on the development and testing of a novel, targeted biotherapeutic for IgG-mediated hemolysis .
Layne BondProgram in Chemical Biology
Layne is the first of our co-supervised students as part of the Greineder/Tessier collaboration. Her work focuses on bispecific affinity ligands for the shuttling full-length antibodies across the blood brain barrier .
Ben SwansonDDS PhD combined program
Well on his way to being an independent clinician scientist, Ben works on the development of targeted, stimuli-responsive agents for diagnosis and treatment of bone and oral health disorders .
Cecilia SpesiaPharmaceutical Sciences
A recent addition to the lab, Cecelia will be co-supervised by Drs. Greineder and Tessier and work on BBB shuttles. Outside of work, she is a member of the U-M crew team. Go BLUE!
Michaela joined the lab in 2021 and keeps everything running smoothly. Outside the lab, Michaela enjoys taking amazing family trips and plays a mean violin.
Kelsey GraceChief Resident, EM4
Kelsey has worked on developing a registry of nearly 1,000 acute PE patients , as part of our effort to understand and change physician behavior around low-risk PE. Recently, she supervised our UROP students in examining physician practices re: acute PE in the pediatric population
Connor O'HareEM2 Resident
Connor has also worked on developing the acute PE registry. His current work is focused on implementing and studying the impact of a multi-component intervention to increase outpatient management of patients with low-risk VTE. He recently won the 2022 Residency Wolverine Den competition.
Kaitlyn PierpontBiomedical Engineering
Kaitlyn joined the lab as a sophomore and has worked on a novel project targeting extracellular vesicles to the vascular endothelium. She is spending the summer as a research fellow at MSKCC.
Our UROP students this year were sophomores Josh Goldberg, Erica Griffin, and Olivia Bichoupan. They created a registry of acute PE cases diagnosed over a 5-year period in the Mott Pediatric Emergency Department.
