Frank DeGuire


I am a senior from Brookfield, WI studying biomedical engineering, and I have been working with the Glukhov lab since the end of my freshman year. In the past, my research has focused on regional sensitivity of calcium signaling in response to hypoosmotic stress, for which I received a Hilldale fellowship. My current research is focused on the role of caveolae in the mechanism of stretch-induced regulation of cardiac contractility. Outside of the lab, I have completed biomedical engineering internships with UW Health and Boston Scientific, and I also enjoy running and backpacking.
