Graduate Research Assistant
Background and Interests
Dessources obtained his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Union College and subsequently came to Duke to pursue his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering. Dessources joined the lab to obtain hands-on experience using molecular and cellular lab techniques, and he hopes to combine these skills with his biomedical engineering background to facilitate his long-term goal of becoming a scientist working on disease therapeutics. His current project in the lab is to identify biomarkers and potential mechanisms that can predict whether an individual will develop chronic pain after a traumatic injury.
