Biography

Courtney received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer in 2014 under the mentorship of Deanna Thompson while studying the effects of endothelial hemodynamics on neural stem cell fate, and her BS at Rensselaer in 2009. Courtney performed her postdoctoral research under the mentorship of Lonnie Shea at the Univeristy of Michigan, where she evaluated various gene therapy, stem cell, and biomaterial therapeutic options for spinal cord injury.
