Graduate researcher spotlight

Bioengineering Ph.D. candidate Ishita Jain currently works in bioengineering professor Gregory Underhill's lab where she is researching how liver cells function in the settings of liver development and liver disease.

I have been interested in the wonders of biological systems ever since I can remember. During my undergraduate, I was fortunate enough to get to explore my research interests in synthetic biology, tissue engineering and stem cell biology. Thankfully, that experience led me to join Dr. Underhill’s lab where I could work on developing high throughput bioengineered systems to answer the most basic questions in human tissue development.
