Kristen Thane, DVMPost-Doctoral Scholar, Clinician in Large Animal Hospital

Dr. Kristen Thane

    Dr. Thane is a Post-Doctoral Scholar supported by an NIH funded project (HL112987-01A1) in our lab. She is investigating the safety and efficacy of autologous lung-derived mesenchymal stromal/stem cell (LMSCs) therapy for emphysema, employing both a sheep model of emphysema and ex vivo model of LMSCs-scaffold interactions to evaluate biological influence of scaffolds (e.g. fibrin) on paracrine signaling. She is also a clinician in the Hospital for Large Animals at Cummings School.

    Dr. Kristen Thane is investigating the effects of biomimetic scaffolds on paracrine signaling of lung derived mesenchymal stem cells (LMSCs).   Shown are LMSCs seeded into a fibrin scaffold for 24 hr at low (left) and high (right) power, showing cell spreading and formation of nanotubes that join the cells.
