Andrew became a member of Dr. Corr's Tissue engineering project in 2012. His main focus was on utilizing scaffold free methods to produce single fiber muscle constructs. These constructs are uniquely suited to study the manner in which muscle fibers may grow as they may be manipulated mechanically, electrically, and chemically all in an observable and non diffusion limited bioreactor. Concurrently, Andrew utilizes the Corr lab's expertise and equipment for measuring soft tissue and material mechanics on the sub-millimeter scale. This work includes measuring the effects of biomechanical sensing apparatus, soft materials, and muscle fibers at the single fiber scale.
Andrew earned his bachelors degree from Union College in Schenectady, NY. He majored in both biology and psychology. Between undergraduate and graduate studies, Andrew worked at BD Biosciences contract research services. There, he helped develop high throughput assays for pharmacokinetic studies.
Andrew earned a Master in Engineering in the Spring of 2017 and now works in Boston.
