Dr. Changjin Huang is currently an Assistant Professor in School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). He received his B.ENG. degree in Thermal Energy and Power 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, and has published peer-reviewed articles in various prestigious journals, including Advanced Materials, Science Advances, Nano Letters, PNAS, etc. Dr. Huang has established fruitful research collaborations with research teams in Singapore as well as from overseas.
Prof. Joshua A. Jackman is an Assistant Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Institute for Convergence at SKKU (BICS) at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) in South Korea. He leads the Translational Nanobioscience lab, which is focused on characterizing the interactions of biomacromolecules and nanomaterials with biological systems and translating scientific insights into engineered solutions to address outstanding needs in medicine, biotechnology, and agriculture. Prof. Jackman has published over 130 papers in scientific journals, such as Nature Materials, Nature Protocols, Nature Communications, Chemical Society Reviews, and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, and filed 8 patents, several of which have been licensed commercially. Before starting his faculty career at SKKU, Prof. Jackman was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He earned his B.S. degree summa cum laude in Chemistry from the University of Florida and his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
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 Prof. Nam-Joon Cho is Nanyang and MRSS Professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and Deputy Director of the Nanyang Institute of Technology in Health and Medicine. In addition, he is a Principal Investigator at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology. His group’s research focuses on engineering approaches to solve important biomedical problems and to translate these capabilities into practical applications for global health. Dr. Cho’s scientific work has been highlighted by international media organizations such as Reuters, CNBC, and Businessweek, and is leading to major breakthroughs for the treatment of deadly pathogens. He has identified novel classes of antiviral drugs to treat virus infections. Dr. Cho’s team is now actively working to examine the causes and consequences of infectious diseases in order to provide improved diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Dr. Cho also leads a multiinstitution tissue engineering collaboration involving NTU and the Stanford University School of Medicine, which focuses on developing an artificial liver platform for regenerative medicine applications. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley.
