Hannah Hales graduated from Stanford University in 2018, majoring in Human Biology.
She currently works as an Anatomy Scholar in the Division of Clinical Anatomy. Her work in the department includes serving as a teaching assistant for various courses in the division, dissection, leading anatomy tutorials for visiting groups (using both prosections and digital resources), assisting with administration in the Willed Body Program, and independent research. She is particularly interested in head and neck anatomy, as well as skeletal anatomy.
In addition, Hannah is also involved in research with Dr. Masaki Arioka of the Helms Laboratory, studying mesenchymal stem cells and adipocytes in the bone marrow cavity, and the Wnt signaling pathway. She plans to attend Dental School in the future, and is interested in orthodontics, prosthodontics and maxillofacial surgery. For the past two years, she has assisted in an Orthodontist office, learning about craniofacial anomalies, surgical methods for patients with cleft lip/palate, and the use of cephalometric x-rays for the assessment of occlusion. Hannah is also interested in medical illustration, she finds the intersection between science and art particularly fascinating. In her free time, she loves to paint, draw, hike and play the harp.
