Visiting Scholar Positions
Visiting scholar positions are available at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI). The TIBI is developing ‘personalized’ solutions that utilize micro- and nanoscale technologies to enable a range of therapies for organ failure, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. To enable this vision, the institute works closely with clinicians including interventional radiologists, cardiologists, and surgeons. Headed by Dr. Khademhosseini, the institute has numerous projects including the use of patient-derived cells to engineer artificial tissues and cell-based therapies; organ-on-a-chip systems that aim to mimic the human physiology and pathology and enable patient-specific evaluation of drug candidates; and novel biomaterials as sealants and adhesives.
