Tyler Jost

Background Information: Tyler A. Jost is a graduate student researcher advised by Professor Amy Brock. He joined the Biomedical Engineering Department in 2019. Tyler previously obtained a B.S. in Engineerng and an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Baylor University.

Research Focus: Tyler's research focuses on computational methods to improve treatment of triple negative breast cancer. Resistance to chemotherapy is a consistent cause of failure in breast cancer. By utilizing mechanistic modeling, transcriptomic data, and more, Tyler hopes to better understand the underlying resistance that arises after treatment.

Using longitudinal cell growth data, organization of cells into clusters can be identified and tracked. This information can then be fed into models to predict cell growth under different conditions.
