Alex Whitehead: Osseointegration of Wrapped Dental Implants in Rabbits
Alex Whitehead is a Junior at Virginia Commonwealth University, with a major in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in mathematics. He is very involved with his research, Theta Tau, BMES, the Ski and Snowboard Club, and music production and DJing. After his undergraduate education, he hopes to work towards a PhD in tissue engineering or regenerative medicine, start his own company, and get better at cooking. Ultimately, he would like to investigate how biomaterials and biological and chemical factors can contribute to tissue regrowth and integration in a living system.
