Teresa Anguiano

Dr. Anguiano is a Postdoctoral Associate under the guidance of Dr. Arthur S. Levine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, also in association with the Brain Institute of Pittsburgh. Dr. Anguiano’s current research focuses on exploring oxidative neuronal DNA damage as a root cause of beta amyloid accumulation in Alzheimer’s Disease.

In a previous postdoctoral appointment, Dr. Anguiano analyzed mesh materials for use in abdominal wall reconstruction essential to hernia repair at the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine, also in association with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Additional projects included exploring the role of matrix-bound nanovesicles (MBV) in the promotion of retinal axon regeneration following optic nerve injury.

Dr. Anguiano received a graduate degree in Molecular Biology, Microbiology, and Biochemistry with a concentration in Public Health Laboratory Sciences from the Southern Illinois University in Springfield, Illinois. She earned her Ph.D. from the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, where she investigated the role of arsenic in the remodeling of the extracellular matrix and skeletal muscle stem cell lineage determination. In her final year of graduate school, she worked as a full-time Visiting Assistant Professor at Duquesne University where she navigated through the difficulties of teaching science-based courses and laboratory sections during a global pandemic.

Dr. Anguiano has been a SOT and HOT member since 2015, serving as Chair of the Graduate Committee (2017–2018), Co-Chair of the Post-Doctoral Committee (2017–2018), and as an Assistant for the Education Committee (2017–2018). In 2018, she received the HOT Graduate Student Travel Award. As a budding professional in science, Dr. Anguiano looks forward to getting more involved with HOT and helping in any way she can.
