Research Interests: Dr. Sochol's research focuses on using mechanical engineering methods and microfabrication technologies to develop: (i) micro/nanoscale mechanobiological cellular platforms, (ii) next-generation integrated microfluidic circuitry, and (iii) autonomous microfluidic handling of suspended microparticles (e.g., microbeads and living cells).
Job Interests: Academic, Tenure-Track Assistant Professor

Dr. Ryan D. Sochol recently began working in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology under the advisement of Ali Khademhosseini in July 2014. Dr. Sochol works at the intersection of micro/nanoscale 3D printing, cell mechanobiology, integrated microfluidic circuitry, and tissue/cellular engineering, developing "Organ-on-a-Chip" platforms (with a focus on the Human Kidney).

Previously, Dr. Sochol majored in Mechanical Engineering, receiving his B.S. from Northwestern University in 2006, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2009 and 2011, respectively, with Doctoral Minors in Bioengineering and Public Health. Thereafter, Dr. Sochol served as a Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow in Prof. Shoji Takeuchi's Laboratory at the University of Tokyo and a Postdoctoral Scholar in Prof. Liwei Lin's Laboratory, while collaborating with Prof. Luke P. Lee and Prof. Song Li, at UC Berkeley. During this time, Dr. Sochol created the Micro Mechanical Methods for Biology (M3B) Laboratory Program at UC Berkeley, through which he has mentored over 70 students and continues to oversee as Director.
