At Professor Feng Xu’s invitation, Professor John C. Bischof from the University of Minnesota and Professor Xiaoming “shawn” He from the Ohio State University at Columbus , visited BEBC on 18th July, 2017 and delivered a report entitled “Nanopartical Heating for Improved Therapeutics, Diagnostics and Regenerative Medicine” in the 308 meeting room in the School of Life Science and Technology.


John’s report explored the underlying physics and relative advantages of each form of nanoparticle(gold and magnetic nanoparticals) heating and then introduce several applications. Meanwhile demonstrated the growing opportunities for nanoparticle heating in biomedical applications. He’s report showed their recent data on developing and utilizing novel bioinspired multiscale biomaterials and devices to engineer various normal and cancer stem cells and immune cells for treating ischemic diseases, modulating immune reactions, and fighting against cancer. In the end of the report, he had a heated discussion with teachers and students in BEBC. After that, they were invited to look around the labs of BEBC.

 

Introduction:

John C. Bischof is now a Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Departments of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, the inaugural Carl and Janet Kuhrmeyer Chair in Mechanical Engineering and the Associate Head of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Bischof’s area of research is in thermal bioengineering with a focus on focal energy therapy, cryopreservation, diagnostics and nano medicine.


Xiaoming “shawn” He is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University (OSU), Columbus, Ohio. His current research is focused on developing micro and nanoscale biomaterials and devices to engineer totipotent, pluripotent, and multipotent stem cells for tissue regeneration, cancer therapy, and assisted reproduction. His research has been funded with him as the PI by various private foundations and government agencies including American Cancer Society, NSF and NIH.
