Kirsten Limesand's research program has its foundation in radiation-induced salivary gland dysfunction; mechanisms of damage, clinical prevention measures, and restoration therapies. They utilize a number of techniques including: genetically engineered mouse models, real-time RT/PCR, immunoblotting, immunohistochemistry, primary cultures, siRNA transfections, and procedures to quantitate salivary gland physiology and integrate this information in order to understand the complete system.

Using engineered biomaterials and cell therapy, my lab develops organ-on-chip systems and artificial implantable organs/devices for diagnostics and therapeutics. I focus on student-centered teaching with hands-on learning experience. I'm a strong advocate for women, URM, first-gen, and non-traditional students (veterans) in STEM education.
