Raven Matthews

Research Laboratory Technician Associate
Engel Lab


Raven began working in the Engel lab in 2021 after earning her bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Michigan - Flint, and serving for two years as an EMT in Genesee County. She also serves on the board of Edible Flint where they pursue the mission of reconnecting the people with the land.

Raven is thrilled to be studying sickle cell anemia, beta-thalassemia, and other disorders of the blood, because she finds blood to be terribly interesting. Eventually, she hopes to study medicine at the University of Michigan.
