Tom is a rising junior studying biomedical engineering and mathematics at the University of Connecticut. He is interested in developing clinically relevant technology to improve patient care as well as gaining valuable laboratory experience. After graduating from UConn he plans to attend graduate school.
Tom works in with Dr. M. Laura Martin and Danielle Bulaon at EIPM to optimize the experimental setup for high-throughput drug screening in regards to the organoid platform. He processes tissues as well as splits organoids to prepare them for experimentation. He is also developing analyses and experimental setups to provide measurements from high content imaging that may be used to determine how different parameters affect the growth and decay of tumor organoids.
