Prof. Ali Khademhosseini
Ali Khademhosseini is a Full Professor at Harvard-MIT's Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST), Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) as well as an Associate Faculty at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. He is also a Junior Principal Investigator at Japan’s World Premier International – Advanced Institute for Materials Research (WPI-AIMR) at Tohoku University where he directs a satellite laboratory. In addition he is an adjunct faculty at the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Austin and an eminent scholar at Kyung Hee University in Korea.
His research is based on developing micro- and nanoscale technologies to control cellular behavior with particular emphasis in developing microscale biomaterials and engineering systems for tissue engineering. He is also developing organ on a chip systems that aim to predict human response in vitro. Currently, his laboratory is developing technologies to control the formation of vascularized tissues with appropriate microarchitectures as well as regulating stem cell differentiation within microengineered systems. His laboratory is also combining these microengineering technologies with state-of-art 3D printing and microfluidic devices to build organs-on-a-chip platforms with on-line sensing units for applications such as drug and toxin screening. He has edited multiple books and is an author on ~350 journal articles, ~50 book chapters/editorials, over 200 abstracts, and 20 patent/disclosure applications. His work has been published in leading journals and routinely highlighted in international media. He has been cited ~15500 times and has an H-index of 65. Also, he has given over 250 invited seminars and keynote lectures.
