’98 CHS alumna at the forefront of neural injuries research
Research contributions to neural tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, nanoparticle therapeutics and discovery of biomarkers in injured brains led recently to Fulton Schools Associate Professor Sarah Stabenfeldt’s election to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows. Elevation to that status in her profession puts her among the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the United States. The honor was noted by a local newspaper based in Edwardsville, Illinois, where Stabenfeldt graduated from Collinsville High School. Stabenfeldt’s work has earned awards and support from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the Arizona Biomedical Research Commission — undoubtedly making her one of the high school’s most accomplished graduates.
