Research interests

Application of the processes for the assignment and loss of cell identity for aging and tissue repair research. Using immunological and biophysics concepts to examine cell communication, extracellular vesicles and RNA.

My lab is building and testing models for controlling cell communication that leads to immunological and tissue repair responses.

Postgraduate supervision

Dr. Stratton would welcome enquiries and applications in extracellular vesicles, immunology, aging and tissue regeneration.
