Morgan is a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. She is a dual-degree major, biomedical engineering and Plan II Honors. Morgan has a special interest in the techniques of tissue engineering being used in surgical or graft construction. She believes exploring the functions of tissue damage and healing to determine how these functions relate to other repair systems in the body (i.e., the nervous system) could be beneficial. She believes using these methods to promote wound healing in traumatic injuries could be very influential in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Morgan is also very interested in the concepts of regenerative medicine, and learning more about the process that supports the research. Specific to stem cells, Morgan is interested in their gene expression and how they can develop into many different cell types. By understanding the gene expression of cells, she believes we can use the information to help develop cells important to the repair system or use them for treatment in diseases.
