Tyree Thompson

Tyree is a Bioengineering student (2021) concentrating on Cell and Tissue Engineering here at Northeastern University. She is a member of the S-POWER cohort, having transferred from Clark Atlanta University. Tyree has a passion for STEM related topics as well as youth outreach.  Programs such as The National Student Leadership Conference - Biotechnology are how she solidified her major. While in Atlanta she tutored middle school students in math, science and English.  Tyree completed a summer research program at UCLA focusing on colon cancer research through their Biochemistry and Chemistry with Dr. Albert Courey.

While attending Northeastern University, she has had the privilege of assisting Dr. Eno Ebong with research on atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, the narrowing of the arteries caused by a buildup of plaque leading to heart attacks, strokes and peripheral vascular disease. In the spring of 2020 Tyree had the opportunity to complete a co- op as a research assistant under Dr. Rebecca Carrier focusing on drug delivery methods. Tyree is excited to share her wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of STEM in hopes that other students will find their passion in this area as well.
