Kuwabo joined the Corr lab in August 2013, after receiving a B.S. in Biology from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. Her current research focuses on scaffold-free tendon fibrogenesis. Using an innovative method that mimics embryonic tendon development, tendon-like constructs are grown in micro-molded, differentially adherent growth channels. The objective of her study is to examine the effect of mechanical and chemical stimuli on tendon regeneration and differentiation. Additionally, she works on the mechanical characterization of biopolymers. Outside of the lab, she enjoys competitive ballroom dancing.
Kuwabo earned her Ph.D In Biomedical Engineering in Spring of 2018.
