Life as a Graduate Student: Nanomedicine research highlights and panel discussion

Come hear about life as a graduate student performing research in nanomedicine! Learn more about this career path and what motivates students to pursue a doctoral degree specializing in nanomedicine. We will be featuring research talks and a panel discussion from fellows in the IGERT Nanomedicine Program at Northeastern University.

Paige Baldwin, PhD Candidate and IGERT Nanomedicine Fellow,

Gino Karlo Delos Reyes, PhD Candidate and IGERT Nanomedicine Fellow,

Benjamin Geilich, PhD Candidate and IGERT Nanomedicine Fellow, received a BS in Neuroscience from Brown University. During his time at Brown, Ben served as the captain of the Stanford-Brown iGEM (international genetically engineered machines competition) team, and conducted research at NASA Ames in Mountain View, CA. After graduation, Ben was awarded a graduate assistantship to pursue his doctorate in Bioengineering at Northeastern University. Ben’s research with Dr. Webster focuses on various applications of nanotechnology and biomimetic systems to prevent and treat bacterial adherence and proliferation on indwelling medical devices. Currently, Ben is working on designing and commercializing polymersome nanocarriers with embedded metallic nanoparticles for use in treating antibiotic-resistant infections. Ben was recently awarded the Outstanding Engineering and Technology Research Award at RISE2015 and First-Prize Bionanotechnology Graduate Student Award by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
