Title: “Biomanufacturing and Pharmacologic Testing of Stroma-Immobilized Bioreactors for Immunotherapy

Biju Parekkasan, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering, RUTGERS School of Engineering, State University of New Jersey

Date: September 28th, 2018 | 1-2pm
Location: Keenan Research Centre, 216 Conference Room, 2nd floor, 209 Victoria Street, St. Michael’s Hospital

Presenting on behalf of the Biomaterials, Tissue Injury & Repair (BTR) Research Theme.

RESEARCH

Our group develops new platform technologies for cell and gene therapy. To this end, we converge knowledge and techniques of cell/gene/tissue engineering, drug delivery, biomaterials, micro/macro-fluidic bioreactors, transport phenomena, chemical kinetics, computational biology, and bioprocess engineering. Our lab collaborates extensively with biology and clinical experts in hematology, oncology, rheumatology, surgery, and infectious disease to design and execute IND-enabling studies in support of human trials. Animal models of these disease areas are created in-house and pre-clinical studies of experimental therapeutics are performed using advanced principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. The research is conducted with a mindfulness of regulatory science and intellectual property for potential opportunities to translate the work with industrial partners or as a new venture.

No sign-up required. For more information contact the iBEST Coordinator, Imran Sheikh (ibest@ryerson.ca).
