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 invitaton and to all the presenters and attendees.
Dr. Huang received the R00 phase Award from NIH NCI for his drug delivery research for glioblastoma.
Dr. Yan Baglo has joined the lab as a postdoctoral research associate. Dr. Baglo comes to us following a postdoc with Prof. Tayyaba Hasan and Tianhong Dai at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and a Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine from Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Welcome to the lab Yan!
Welcome to Yahya Cheema, who recently joined the lab. Yahya is a sophomore bioengineering student at the University of Maryland. He will be helping with lab setup and begin his research projects in the summer.
