* 대사관 후원
Dr. Changjin Huang joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in September 2018 as an Assistant Professor. He received his B.ENG. degree in Thermal Science and Energy Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2008, and then Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Pennsylvania State University in 2014. Before joining NTU, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University from 2014-2015, and then as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) from 2016-2018. Dr. Huang’s research interests generally lie at the intersection of mechanics, materials, engineering and biology. His central research focus is to provide mechanistic understanding of the underlying principles that control the mechanical properties and stress state of biological materials and biomaterials, and how changes in mechanical properties and stress state affect their functions.
Joshua A. Jackman is an Assistant Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University. He received his BS degree in Chemistry from the University of Florida and PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Nanyang Technological University and was a postdoctoral scholar at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has received fellowships from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, National Science Foundation, and American Liver Foundation. His research interests lay at the interface of materials science and biotechnology towards developing biosensors, bioanalytical measurement platforms, and medical technologies.
Abdul Rahim Ferhan is a Research Fellow in the Engineering in Translational Science group in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University. He received his BEng degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University. His research focuses on the development and application of novel nanoplasmonic sensing platforms for biomedical diagnostics and fundamental investigations into biomacromolecular interaction processes.
Nam-Joon Cho is a Nanyang Associate Professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering and Principal Investigator of the Engineering in Translational Science group at Nanyang Technological University. A recipient of the National Research Foundation Fellowship, he received his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford University School of Medicine. His research focuses on engineering artificial lipid membrane and tissue platforms to probe biological systems, and to develop enhanced therapeutic and drug delivery options that more effectively target infectious diseases, inflammatory disorders, and cancer along with the development of pollen-based biomaterials.
