Dan Hageman joined Professor Melissa Knothe Tate’s lab in 2015, after completing his Bachelors of Science in Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. Although his past research focused heavily on neural interfacing within animal models, Dan looked to take his talents to Syndey, Australia and now looks to focus his new MechBio research on bridging the gap between ‘local’ and ‘global’ physiological events of the musculoskeletal system. Through computational models and the acquisition of novel  high-throughput nanoscale images, he works to develop interactive maps of the musculoskeletal system, maps with similar applications as the well-known ‘Google Maps’ that is so widely utilized by the public today. Further, Dan also incorporates his passion for working with patients through a complementary study on breast cancer survivors afflicted with secondary lymphoedema. Working closely with co-supervisor Dr. Stanley Rockson of Stanford University, Dan utilizes MRI imaging, qualitative assessment, and pressure map modelling for patients to optimize the commercialization of compression garments commonly used today for lymphoedma treatment. Through his two projects, Dan eventually hopes to develop stochastic models to aid in the future diagnostics of musculoskeletal- and lymph- based disorders.
