Caitlin Sok

Caitlin Powell Sok completed her undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. She is in the MD/PhD program at Emory University and joined Dr. Botchwey’s lab in 2013. Caitlin’s work focuses on developing materials that tune the inflammatory response after injury to promote tissue healing and repair. In recently published work, she demonstrated that local delivery of specialized proresolving lipid mediators modulate immune cell recruitment and enhance post-injury vascular remodeling. In ongoing collaborative work, Caitlin is interested in creating a combined-delivery hydrogel system that is able to promote acceptance of transplanted tissue.
