Welcome, Lyndsey de Guzman, who joins the DaCosta Lab as a Masters student!
Lyndsey completed a major in Bio-Medical Sciences and a minor in Business at the University of Guelph. Her undergraduate research project focused on the development of spontaneous osteoarthritis with a concentration of integrin α1β1 and the transforming growth factor beta. She used histological techniques through sectioning and grading with the OARSI scoring system of dissected mouse knee joints. Lyndsey’s impressive academic achievements include consistently being on the Dean’s List throughout her undergraduate program and graduating with distinction.
Lyndsey will apply her extensive experience with animal experiments to study the complex interactions of immune cells with leukemia cells within the bone marrow microenvironment using the femoral window chamber platform in live mouse models developed by our lab.
We are excited to have Lyndsey as part of the team!
