Maria Stanslaski received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities in 2019 and 2020, respectively. During her undergraduate studies, she was a research assistant in the Odde lab, where she focused on how brain cancer cells migrate through microchannels that simulate environments in the brain. She is a co-author on a publication in the Biophysical Journal from this work. For her Master’s, Maria joined the Neuromodulation Research and Technology lab. She did combined histology and computational modeling project to analyze the structure of the renal nerves as an application to determine the feasibility of renal denervation via electrical stimulation to treat resistant hypertension. She also worked part-time for two years at Medtronic in the electrical engineering group of Neuromodulation Product Development prior to joining NeuroLux as a Research Engineer in 2020.
