Congratulations to our PhD student Chelsea Gibbs who was one of four students selected to give a Rising Star talk at the 2022 BC Regenerative Medicine Cascadia Corridor Research Symposium (a.k.a. Cascadia 4.0)!! The title of her talk was “Changes in Graft-Host Coupling Can Lead to Engraftment Arrhythmia: A Computational Study.” This research was conducted in collaboration with Dr. Chuck Murry’s group at UW, and helps advance understanding of engraftment-related arrhythmia following the implantation of human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes.

We are extremely proud of you Chelsea! Keep up the great work!
