About this team member
Meagan received a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Georgia in May 2011. At UGA, she did analytical chemistry research with Prof. Marcus Lay. She began graduate school at the University of Michigan in Fall 2011 to study Materials chemistry and joined the Banaszak Holl group in 2012. She studied the nanoscale structure of Type 1 collagen and the relationship of structure to disease and collagen formation.
In 2016 she became a post-doctoral fellow working with Dr. Isaac Moss in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Connecticut Health Center.
