Lance Frazer

Primary office:

Frazer is a 2015-2019 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in bioengineering. He received a B.S. (2014) in biomedical engineering from the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona. As an undergraduate, Frazer performed research in a biomaterials laboratory where he worked on developing 3-D biocompatible scaffold to regenerate heart tissue. He also worked on developing a material that could detect metastatic breast cancer cells in blood. As a graduate student at the University of Kansas, Frazer has shifted his research interests into computational modeling. He is currently investigating subchondral bone cysts that develop in racehorses and ways in which to fix them.
