Develops emergent tissue engineering strategies to be translated into the clinic.

Education and Experience

Joe is currently a MD-PhD candidate in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Through this training, Joe will pursue a PhD in Bioengineering and investigate tissue engineering strategies based on developmental biology concepts for generating functional organoid constructs to be used in drug discovery and tissue repair applications. Joe graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) with a Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering. During his time at the UPenn, Joe worked at the Laboratory for Neural Engineering of Dr. D. Kacy Cullen, where he helped to develop tissue engineering repair strategies for peripheral nerve injuries. Joe also conducted research at Estée Lauder Companies, Advanced Technologies for Skin Biology, developing skin care products that capitalize on the pro-resolution phase of inflammation.

Below are the three areas you need to edit in order to place a new staff profile on the homepage, in the staff profile landing page, and the full staff bio page. These instructions are hidden and will not show up on the public profile page. You can, however, delete this box when you no longer need these instructions. I - Create a new Staff Profile page 1. Go to Posts and click "Add New" 2. Enter the person’s full name and degrees in the “Enter Title Here” field 3. Scroll down to the Muffin Builder section 4. Click on "Templates" 5. Select: "New Staff Profile Template" 6. Select: "REPLACE current builder content" 7. Click: "Use Template" 8. Update content within each Item accordingly. Anything within (parenthesizes) should be updated. 9. Scroll to the LAYOUT section and choose the following options to maintain the appearance of the page and navigation: a. Switch "Hide The Content" button to ON b. For Layout, choose "Right Sidebar" c. For Sidebar, select "Meet Our Translators" 10. Under Categories, choose the appropriate staff role. 11. Click Publish when finished. II - Add new Offer to appear on "Meet the Team" on homepage 1. Under "Offer", click "Add New" 2. Enter the person’s full name in the “Enter Title Here” field. 3. Copy/paste the content from the Body Copy area of another offer into this offer and update accordingly. This will guarantee you get the same look and feel. 4. Choose the appropriate category based on job title. 5. Add the person’s headshot under “Featured Image” and make sure the background is transparent (.png) 6. Update the Post Attribute Order field to keep with the alphabetical order. You will need to view the list of offers to determine the appropriate Order attribute to assign. You will then need to update all the subsequent offers so they continue with the appropriate order. 7. Hit Publish. III - Add new profile to Meet the Team landing page This content will need to be added manually and does not pull from other areas on the site, like the homepage or staff profile pages. You'll need to copy/paste the following code into the appropriate area and update it with the new staff member's information. Stage location: Production location:
