Ms Lujien Dribika
School of Biosciences
I obtained my BSc in Biomedical Science and MSc in Tissue Engineering from Cardiff University, and I am currently a PhD student within the Regenerative Biology Group in the School of Dentistry. My research investigates phospholipids in bone-derived extracellular vesicles and their potential role in promoting bone regeneration.
My research project will involve extraction and characterisation of extracellular vesicles (EVs) from human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells and a human osteoblast cell model (Saos-2); and will specifically analyse phospholipids within the EVs to determine if they are involved in modulating osteogenesis in vitro.
