Evan Morris

2020 UExB Student | Huebsch Lab

Evan Morris is a rising junior at Washington University in St. Louis, majoring in Biomedical Engineering. He is currently working in Dr. Nathaniel Huebsch’s lab, studying biomaterials and tissue engineering. Evan will be assisting in understanding how mechanical cues within cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix contacts affect heart development and tissue fate, thus expanding possibilities for 3D modeling and medical interventions for cardiac tissue modeling and regeneration.

 

Research Title:
