Biography

Shyanne Page completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from West Texas A&M University, Canyon, TX in 2014. She worked in the lab of Dr. Fakhrul Ahsan in Summer 2014 through the Amarillo Biomedical Research Internship program, and joined the Graduate Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences as a PhD student in Spring 2015. Shyanne is presently working in the laboratory of Dr. Abraham Al-Ahmad with the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Education:

  • BS: Biology, West Texas A&M University, Canyon, TX, 2014

Research Interests:

I am interested in using the potential of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as a model to study gender-based differences in the blood-brain barrier (BBB) structure and function following hypoxic/ischemic stroke. I would also like to use this iPSC model to study epilepsy and possibly multiple sclerosis.
