Upcoming Events

Innovation and Design of Medical Devices

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Justin Chickles, CEO, Mobile Sense Technologies

121 Snell Library -- NEU, 4:00 PM

Mentor Spotlight

Peter Caravan, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor in Radiology, HMS

My research broadly encompasses the design, synthesis, and application of molecular and nanoparticle-based imaging probes for detecting disease and monitoring treatment response. Students will help develop and study magnetic resonance, computed tomography, or positron emitting probes for imaging cancer.

Jeffrey M Karp, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Medicine, HMS, BWH

The Karp lab has developed biocompatible polymer-based biomaterials with strongly adhesive nano-texture that have the ability to conform to irregular-shaped surfaces. Students will study self-assembled hydrogels loaded with pro-drug as a controlled delivery system for treatment of brain tumors.
