Congratulations Prof Aaron Streets, one of 22 early-career researchers joining the 2019 Pew Scholars Program in Biomedical Sciences! Streets will explore how obesity leads to unhealthy changes in the cellular, molecular and structural composition of adipose tissue.
Professor Terry Johnson and MTM Director Moose O’Donnell joined other University of California faculty at the 2019 BioMedical Engineering Education Summit Meeting May 29-31. Sponsored by the BMES Council of Chairs, the summit evaluates the current state of educational approaches in BME and fosters progress and improvement that addresses future national challenges.
Professor Aaron Streets has been awarded a 2019 NSF CAREER Award for his research on a microfluidic-microscopy hybrid platform for whole-tissue chemical and transcriptional profiling. The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent […]
We are extremely pleased to announce our newest faculty member, Dr. Liana Lareau. A graduate of MIT and UC Berkeley, her research uses computational and molecular biology to understand how post-transcriptional regulation leads to robust and flexible control of gene expression. Welcome Liana!
Professor Kevin Healy has been awarded a grant from the FDA through the UCSF-Stanford Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI). The grant will cover collaborative research on “Multi-organ microphysiological systems for modeling clinical drug effects.”
Professor Irina Conboy and researcher Michael Conboy were interviewed by ABC News on the practice of infusing young blood into older adults in an attempt to thwart the aging process. The FDA recently issued a warning against this practice, supported by the Conboys, experts on aging research.
BioE startup GenEdit, founded by Professor Niren Murthy and PhD alumnus Kunwoo Lee, has received new seed funding to pursue their nonviral nanoparticle CRISPR-delivery system.
Professor Kevin Healy has been elected to the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Class of 2018 Fellows. Fellowship is awarded to members who demonstrate exceptional achievements and experience in the field of biomedical engineering, and a record of membership and participation in the Society. Congratulations Professor Healy!
Professors Steve Conolly and David Schaffer have been selected for the Bakar Fellows Program, which supports faculty working to apply scientific discoveries to real-world issues in the fields of engineering, computer science, chemistry and biological and physical sciences. Conolly is a worldwide pioneer in medical imaging and magnetic particle imaging, while Schaffer is an innovator in the field of gene therapy.
