Huang and colleagues introduced a nanoengineering approach and established a generalizable "carrier effect" phenomenon to improve the effectiveness of photo-immunotherapy and imaging. Congratulations to Prof. Huang and co-authors at Massachusetts General Hospital! Read the full article here!
Dr. Huang gave an Invited talk at the Engineering Conferences International: Nanotechnology in Medicine II: Bridging Translational in vitro and in vivo Interfaces in Albufeira, Portugal. The talk took place in the "Design Advances in Nanomaterials and Nanotheranostics" session. Thanks to the organizing committee for the invitation.
Welcome to Jill, who recently joined the lab. Her research interests focus on photodynamic modulation to overcome multidrug resistance in cancer. Jill hopes to eventually matriculate into medical school to obtain her MD.
Dr. Huang Chairs a session and Gives Three Invited TALKs at 2018 Biennial Meeting American Society for Photobiology
Dr. Huang presented strategies for writing the Career Development and Mentoring portions of the NIH K99/R00 application to ASP Associate Members. The talks "Sub-cytotoxic photodynamic priming to re-shape cancer Care" and "Nanotechnology for Photoimmunotherapy" were well received by the community. Thanks to the organizing committee for the invitation and to all the presenters and attendees.
Welcome to Swapna, who recently joined the lab. His research interests focus on photodynamic priming and extracellular vesicles for drug delivery. Swapna hopes to eventually matriculate into medical school to obtain his MD.
Dr. Huang gave a podium presentation of his work on photodynamic priming at the third annual Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Bioengineering Symposium at Arizona State University, Tempe campus.
Welcome to our first two Ph.D. students, Collin Inglut and Barry Liang! Collin completed his B.S in Biomedical Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology and participated in cooperative education where he spent over a year working at Zimmer Biomet. Barry completed his B.S. in Biochemistry from St. Mary's College of Maryland and interned at NIH.
Dr. Huang gave an Invited talk at the SPIE Photonic West conference in San Francisco, CA. The talk took place in the "Pharmacokinetic Tomography: Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion" session of Visualizing and Quantifying Drug Distribution in Tissue. Thanks to the organizing committee for the invitation and to all the presenters and attendees.
Dr. Huang received the R00 phase Award from NIH NCI for his drug delivery research for glioblastoma.
