2015 Summer Scholar Profile: Amanda Paraluppi Bueno

Posted by Greg Chin on June 24, 2015 | SRF Education

My name is Amanda Paraluppi Bueno and I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science at the Centro Universitario Heminio Ometto, Araras-SP (Brazil). I came as an exchange student to study at University of Idaho, Moscow-ID, for one year through the Science Without Borders Program. This summer, under the guidance of Dr. Graça Almeida-Porada, Saloomeh Mokhtari, and Steven Greenberg, I will try to develop novel cell-based therapies that could provide a curative treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

2015 Summer Scholar Profile: Blake Johnson

Posted by Greg Chin on June 24, 2015 | SRF Education

My name is Blake Johnson, and I am a rising senior studying Human Physiology at the University of Iowa. This summer, I am working under the direction of Dr. John Jackson to generate thymus organoids capable of producing functional T-cells. The ability to generate a functional thymus outside the body would have a number of clinical applications, including rejuvenation of an aging thymus to boost the immune response in older individuals and development of tolerance in organ transplantation.

2015 Summer Scholar Profile: Le Zhang

Posted by Greg Chin on June 24, 2015 | SRF Education

My name is Le Zhang. I just completed my Bachelor of Science in biochemistry & biotechnology from Michigan State University. This summer, I will be working in Dr. Jeanne Loring’s laboratory at the Center for Regenerative Medicine in the Scripps Research Institute. I will be analyzing the genomic stability of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and neuronal progenitor cells (NPCs), which are intended for cell replacement therapies for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
