Lauren grew up in the small town of Rutherfordton, North Carolina and received a BS in chemistry and a minor in German from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2021. While at UNC Chapel Hill, she worked with both Dr. Nancy Allbritton to develop an in vitro organ-on-a-chip model of colonic crypts using primary human colonic epithelial stem cells and Dr. Matthew Lockett to develop a physiologically relevant liver stiffness model that could be used for drug screening and discovery. She is currently working on a developing a platform for modeling cell contractility with hydrogel patterning techniques and also is a part of the at-home blood sampling project. In her free time, Lauren enjoys reading, drinking wine, petting cats, photography, Carolina basketball, and hanging out with friends.
