Liane graduated from Johns Hopkins University in three and a half years with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering. Her first two years at Hopkins she studied MRI scans of schizophrenic brains at the Center for Imaging Sciences lab and worked on a medical device design team. In 2011 she conducted research at Rice University through the NSF REU Internship Program, working on the development of an autologous cardiac patch for patients with congenital heart defects in the lab of Jeffrey Jacot, PhD. Quickly developing a passion for stem cell and biomaterial therapies, Liane decided to focus her studies on cell and tissue engineering by conducting research in the biomaterials and drug delivery lab of Jordan Green, PhD, for three semesters. Her independent senior design project focused on layer-by-layer polymer coatings for sustained gene deliver and was published in 2013.
