Bradley earned his Bachelors of Engineering in Bioengineering with a minor in Chemistry from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015 and is now perusing his PhD in the Bioengineering Graduate Program at Notre Dame. His undergraduate research was focused on ascertaining the role of microvascular pericytes in ascending aortic disease. He is currently working in Dr. Zorlutuna's lab on designing and implementing microfluidic devices to study the effect of inflammation during and after heart attacks in a model that can mimic in vivo conditions. Additionally, he will travel to the National University of Ireland, Galway to work with Dr. Abhay Pandit to study the effect of microfluidic environments on the carbohydrate profile of cardiac cells.
