Explore immune mechanisms that represent new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease therapy in this Discovery Lecture Series from the ASU Biodesign Institute.
Deepanjan Ghosh, a biological design engineering graduate student, recently earned a 2020 Baxter Young Investigator Award for impactful research on a tissue repair and wound healing technology that prevents post-surgical complications and improves surgical outcomes.
Ghosh is a researcher in the Rege Bioengineering Lab, directed by Professor Kaushal Rege. The lab team works on developing new materials for improving human health, including new methods of tissue repair using nanoscale chemical interactions. Ghosh’s research centers on developing photothermal (light and heat) and immunomodulatory (modulating the immune system) biomaterials for soft tissue healing and repair.
“Although wound closure products like sutures, staples and tissue glues are clinical gold standards, each of them has its own inherent limitations,” Ghosh says. “The need for more efficacious wound closure and repair products is a big research push both in university and industry research labs.”
