Phillip Sandborn The January BSAC Research Seminar Series will feature Dr. SoonGweon Hong of BSAC Co-Director Prof. Luke Lee research lab.

New Drug Discovery Platforms and Organ-on-a-Chip Models

The presentation will focus on physiologically-modeled drug discovery platforms for various human organs.  To avoid high costs and health risks caused by unexpected drug failures, there is a critical need for new drug discovery methods.  Micro- and nanoscale engineering enabling precise microphysiological regulation is recognized as a potential approach to facilitate new drug discovery with better biological understanding.  Two neuropathological models will be presented: an organoid minibrain model in physiological microfluidics and a vertebrate model representing human brain diseases.  These models are integrated with unique electrical interfaces for real-time monitoring of brain development and neuropathology.  Other human organ models will be presented including liver, heart and pancreas, which allow a precise characterization of drug effects on individual organs.  A novel nanofluidic approach capable of assessing molecular accessibility into intracellular space especially for efflux pump-based drug resistant bacteria will conclude the presentation.

Dr. Hong joined BSAC and Prof. Lee's group as a graduate research student in 2008 and is currently a project scientist.  His doctoral research focused on nano-optics and biological applications.  After receiving his Ph.D. in 2012, he participated in developing drug discovery platforms recapitulating human physiology/pathology and precisely assessing drug-resistant pathogens through the organ-on-a-chip concept and micro/nanofluidics.

THE BSAC RESEARCHER SEMINAR SERIES IS OPEN TO BSAC MEMBERS, FACULTY, AND RESEARCHERS ONLY.
