Real name: 

Hunter is a PhD candidate in the Woodruff in his 3rd year of the Driskill Graduate Program. With a background in engineering, his work in the Woodruff Lab focuses on the development of new fluidic culture technologies that enable novel approaches to tissue interaction studies for the purpose of disease modeling, drug testing, and investigational toxicology. As a member of the engineering team for EVATAR, he helped develop the first ex-vivo female reproductive tract capable of reproducing the endocrine profile of the 28-day human menstrual cycle. His current work involves development of next-generation systems and models beyond the female reproductive tract, including the male counterpart to EVATAR.
