Katelyn Lesk

Research Interests

Katelyn Lesk has graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in the field of Bioengineering, with minors in Materials Science and Engineering and Chemistry. Katelyn began working with the Neural Tissue Electrode/ Interface and Neural Tissue Engineering Lab in May 2005 when she participated in the Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates program. Since then, Katelyn has worked on the Coulter project contributing to the development of conducting polymer/hydrogel skin electrodes and on the evaluation of neural stem cells seeded on neural probes, until the time of her graduation.
