Postdoctoral Fellow

Email: mohsen.akbarian@marquette.edu


Mohsen earned his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Shiraz University (2019). He joined the Pharmaceutical Research Center, School of Pharmacy at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences as a researcher and next moved to the Department of Chemistry at National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, at the same time he also won the TWAS-DBT Postgraduate Fellowship Programme established by The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) of the Ministry of Science and Technology in India, and UNESCO-The World Academy of Sciences, Italy. He joined the Dr. Tayebi’s group in 2022.

Daniela Masson-Meyers

Daniela Masson-Meyers

Postdoctoral Fellow

Email: daniela.masson-meyers@marquette.edu


Dr. Masson-Meyers joined Tayebi group in January 2020. She holds a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences, Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy. She completed her Ph.D. from the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), with part of her doctoral research performed at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Her research interests include regenerative medicine, tissue injury and repair and tissue engineering. Her research will be an extension and combination of previous experience in cell culture and methodologies to assess tissue repair with new skills and knowledge of developing and testing engineered tissue scaffolds, particularly vascularized osteo-mucosal tissue constructs using 3D-printing technology.
