Biomaterials for Tissue Engineering and Drug Delivery
UC San Diego – Summer 2017 – Accepting Applications
His system for genetically identifying pathogens can accelerate the diagnostic process from a two day process to just four hours
3D matrix systems biology, digital PCR, machine learning, Raman spectroscopy, infectious disease, cancer. Research to understand the multi-scale physical and molecular contexts that drive complex cell behaviors in cancer and sepsis. Her studies aim to improve our understanding of immune modulated disease progression and develop new technologies for disease detection and personalized interventions.
One of the youngest and most provocative engineering disciplines, bioengineering uses the principles and tools of traditional engineering and applies them to solving biomedical problems. The broad spectrum of bioengineering has a foundation in all of the engineering sciences, as well as biology, physiology and other biomedical sciences.
