Congratulations to Samantha for successfully defending her PhD thesis, ‘Biomaterial-based models of the endometrium and trophoblast invasion to investigate early pregnancy.’ Samantha reinvirogorated our women’s health platforms, developing an entirely new effort to examine the role of endometrial tissue microenvironment on trophoblast invasions. Her work has unlocked new research areas in placentation and in endometrial disorders such as endometriosis. She will be moving to Washington University in St Louis to begin a postdoc with Dr. Michelle Oyen to continue to expand her Women’s Health efforts. We are so proud of her and will miss her leadership and support. Congrats Dr. Zambuto!
