Meet Research Grant Recipient: Melanie Martinez

Melanie Martinez works at the University of Florida in the department of neurosurgery as a research technician in  Dr. Brian Hoh’s cerebrovascular lab.  Melanie’s parents emigrated from Colombia and Belize and they are her greatest inspiration when it comes to accomplishing her academic and research goals. 

Melanie is passionate about cerebrovascular research and is focusing on the mechanistic pathways involved in intracranial aneurysm healing and rupture. Melanie’s goal is to become an MD-PhD and help advance science through her research. 

Melanie Martinez is the recipient of the Thomas J. Tinlin, the Sara Hebner, and the Sharon Epperson Chairs Of Research for $30,000 and hopes to contribute to the mechanistic pathways involved in aneurysm healing that could lead to a more targeted treatment for patients who suffer from intracranial aneurysms.
