Dr. Tejal Desai is at present an affiliate Professor of body structure and Bioengineering on the college of California, San Francisco. She is additionally a member of the California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical learn and the UCSF/UCB Bioengineering Graduate workforce. sooner than becoming a member of UCSF, she was once a professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston collage and affiliate Director of the guts for Nanoscience and Nanobiotechnology at BU. She got the Sc.B. measure in Biomedical Engineering from Brown college (Providence, RI) in 1994 and the Ph.D. measure in bioengineering from the joint graduate application at college of California, Berkeley and the collage of California, San Francisco, in 1998. Dr. Tejal Desai directs the Laboratory of healing Micro and Nanotechnology. as well as authoring over 60 technical papers, she is almost immediately an affiliate editor of Langmuir, Biomedical Microdevices, and Sensors Letters and is enhancing a e-book on healing Microtechnology. She has chaired and arranged a number of meetings and symposia within the zone of bioMEMS, micro and nanofabricated biomaterials, and micro/nanoscale tissue engineering.

Desai's study efforts have earned her a variety of awards. In 1999, she used to be famous by way of Crain's Chicago enterprise journal with their annual "40 less than forty" award for management. She was once additionally named that 12 months through expertise assessment journal as one of many nation's "Top a hundred younger Innovators" and renowned Science’s fantastic 10. Desai's educating efforts have been famous while she received the varsity of Engineering top Advisor/Teacher Award. She additionally gained the nationwide technological know-how Foundation's "New Century student" award and the NSF college Early occupation improvement application "CAREER" award, which acknowledges teacher-scholars probably to develop into the tutorial leaders of the twenty first century. Her learn in healing microtechnology has additionally earned her the Visionary technology Award from the overseas Society of BioMEMS and Nanotechnology in 2001, an international know-how Award Finalist in 2004, and the EURAND award for leading edge advances in drug supply.

Sangeeta N. Bhatia, M.D., Ph.D., is an affiliate Professor on the Massachusetts Institute of know-how. Her paintings makes a speciality of utilizing micro- and nanotechnology instruments to fix broken tissues. Dr. Bhatia educated at Brown, MIT, and Harvard. After postdoctoral education on the Massachusetts common sanatorium , she used to be a member of the Bioengineering division at college of California at San Diego for six years. In 2005, she lower back to Boston to hitch the MIT college. She has been provided the David and Lucile Packard Fellowship given to ‘the nation's such a lot promising younger professors in technology and engineering,' the MIT TR100 younger Innovators Award, and been named certainly one of San Diego 's '50 humans to observe in 2004'. Her study portfolio comprises investment from NIH, NSF, DARPA, NASA, the Whitaker beginning, the Packard origin, and personal undefined. She co-authored the 1st undergraduate textbook on tissue engineering and is a widespread consultant to governmental companies on cell-based sensing, nanobiotechnology, and tissue engineering. She holds 12 issued or pending patents and has labored in at Pfizer, Genetics Institute, ICI prescribed drugs, and Organogenesis.

Professor Mauro Ferrari is a pioneer within the fields of bioMEMS and biomedical nanotechnology. As a number one educational, a devoted entrepreneur, and a imaginative and prescient setter for the Nation's optimum Federal courses in nanomedicine, he brings a three-fold vantage point of view to his roles as Editor-in-Chief for this paintings. Dr. Ferrari has authored or co-authored over one hundred fifty medical guides, 6 books, and over 20 US and

International patents. Dr. Ferrari can also be Editor-in-Chief of Biomedical Microdevices and sequence editor of the recent Springer sequence on rising Biomedical Technologies.

Several inner most region businesses originated from his laboratories on the Ohio kingdom collage and the college of California at Berkeley through the years. On a Federal project as certain

Expert in Nanotechnology and Eminent student, he has supplied the clinical management for the improvement of the Alliance for melanoma Nanotechnology of the nationwide melanoma Institute, the world-largest clinical nanotechnology operation thus far. Dr. Ferrari knowledgeable in mathematical physics in Italy, bought his Master's and Ph.D. in Mechanical

Engineering at Berkeley, attended scientific institution on the Ohio nation collage, and served in college positions in fabrics technology and Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering in Berkeley, the place he was once first tenured. At Ohio nation he at present serves as Professor of inner drugs, department of Hematology and Oncology, as Edgar Hendrickson Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and as Professor of Mechanical Engineering. he's affiliate Director of the Dorothy M. Davis

Heart and Lung study Institute, and the University's affiliate vp for health and wellbeing technology, expertise and Commercialization.
