NSF Graduate Research Fellow
Project Title:
“Engineering 3D stem cell microenvironments and micro-scale tissue models”


Oriane graduated from Duke University in 2014 with a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. As a Pratt Undergraduate Research Fellow in the laboratory of Professor William M. Reichert, she worked on self-healing biomaterials, investigating the mechanical properties and biocompatibility of acrylic bone cement embedded with microencapsulated 2-octyl cyanoacrylate. Oriane became increasingly interested in stem cell engineering throughout her undergraduate research experiences and joined the McDevitt laboratory in January 2015 after the move to the Gladstone Institutes. In August 2015, she started the Bioengineering PhD Program at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, San Francisco.
