Trisha is a scientist, entrepreneur, inventor and published regenerative medicine thought leader with over 15 years' experience in the research, translational and clinical sciences. She was additionally part of the management team who developed the first health profession-focused school in the Middle East. A Houston native, Ms. Pfluger completed her B.S in Biochemistry at the University of Houston-Downtown, during which time she worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center, completed two NSF fellowships and interned at multiple clinics in the Houston area. She also was accepted into the Biochemistry, Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology Ph.D. program at the University of California Davis, where she completed and published her research in cell electrotaxis; invented a novel cell electrotaxis-inducing stem cell delivery platform to repair damaged brain tissue; conducted translational research projects at the Institute for Regenerative Cures, Shriner's Hospital and the California Primate Center; and was an active member in the Designated Emphasis for Biotechnology Program. Halfway through her Ph.D. she co-founded Juno Biomedical Inc. and as the company quickly took off at full-speed, made the decision to run Juno Biomedical full-time starting in February 2015. Since then, she has built a strong team and an even stronger company – which was accepted into and completed the Singularity University accelerator. Through Juno Biomedical, Trisha is on the cutting edge of regenerative medicine and is tenacious in her pursuit of the holy grail of medicine: the ability to repair damaged brain tissue.
