Dr. Marturello received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois in 2012. She completed a rotating internship at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston followed by a surgical internship at a private practice in Colorado. Dr. Marturello then moved to Michigan to complete a year as a Research Associate under the guidance of Dr. Loic Dejardin. She remained at Michigan State University to pursue a combined Master of Science in orthopedics/biomechanics and Surgical Residency from 2015-2019. Dr. Marturello has training in 3D reconstruction and 3D printing for both research purposes as well as for clinical cases. Her current research interests lie not only with investigating 3D printing of bone-like materials, but also the applications of this technology for resident and student training.
