Associate Research Fellow
Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica
Dr. Jack Hu recevied his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2011 and recevied postdoctoral trainings in the Nanoengineering Department of UCSD. He holds a B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering with minors in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley.
Nanotechnology in medicine has shown tremendous value in drug delivery and vaccine preparations, where pharmacokinetics and immune activation can be finely tuned via rational nanomaterials engineering. The research focus of the laboratory is to develop novel therapeutic nanomaterials with an emphasis toward clinical translation. We seek to adopt an engineering approach to improve treatments for major diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and infectious disease.
