Dr. Uzer is the director of the Mechanical Adaptations Laboratory, focused on identifying relevant components of mechanical signals that modulate a wide variety of musculoskeletal functions. In his free time Dr. Uzer enjoys anything technology and outdoor sports.
Scott completed his BS in Chemistry with a Biochemistry specialization from Central Washington University in 2014. Until joining graduate school he worked in antibody industry. He is currently working on how stem cell structure regulates their mechanosignaling. Outside of the lab interests include playing piano and anything outdoors, especially hiking.
Matthew Graduated from Oral Roberts University in 2017 with an undergraduate degree in Biology where he researched the use of CRISPR as a potential cancer treatment. Matthew is working on stem cell nuclear organization and fate selection. In his spare time Matthew enjoys backpacking, snowshoeing, and cooking.
Josh is a Mechanical Engineer who joined in MAL in Fall 2017 as a research intern and now moved on to graduate school, he is working on mechanical regulation of cell structure.
Alex completed his BS in Mechanical engineering and currently is a graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering. He works on replicating bone marrow mechanics and teaches fluid mechanics in his spare time.
Kali is a Bioengineer who is joining us from Biomolecular Sciences graduate program. She studies combined effects of microgravity and radiation in stem cells.
Undergraduate Researcher / Accelerated Masters Program
Matt is a senior and a accelerated master program student in Mechanical Engineering. He is working on the how mechanical signals regulate YAP/TAZ signaling in stem cells.
Stacie joined our lab as a senior in Biology and decided to stay in the lab as research assistant. She studies YAP/TAZ signaling in stem cells.
