Maxwell is a MD/PhD student, and joined the Woodruff Laboratory in 2015. He earned a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a B.A. in French and Francophone Studies from the University of Rhode Island. In the Woodruff lab Maxwell investigates male-based reproductive science projects. Specifically, he is developing bioengineered in vitro culture systems for spermatogenesis, and modeling androgen-dependent interactions in testis and prostate physiology. This work will be applied towards developing an ex vivo male reproductive tract (MRT), that will allow the study of the MRT as a whole in a 3D microphysiologic setting.
