Sandra's work during her 4-month visit to the Polacheck Lab in 2018 was recently published in Biomicrofluidics. Sandra is a PhD candidate in Dr. Jose Manuel Garcia Aznar's lab at the University of Zaragoza in Spain. She used microfluidic technology developed by the Polacheck Lab to investigate factors contributing to monocyte extravasation, and she plans to use these techniques to understand the pathogenesis of tuberculosis.
