Triggerable Oxygen Nanobubbles for Drug Delivery, Diagnosis, and Enhanced Survival
Dr. Joseph Irudayaraj is a former Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Professor of Mechanical Engineering (by courtesy), and the Deputy Director of the Bindley Bioscience Center at Purdue University. He is currently the Grainger Initiative's Founder Professor Chair in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Irudayaraj received a B.S. in Agricultural Engineering from the College of Agricultural Engineering, TNAU, India, an M.S. in Computer Sciences, and an M.S. in Biosystems Engineering from the University of Hawaii, and a Ph.D. in Bioprocess Engineering from Purdue. Dr. Irudayaraj's research focus includes the development of multifunctional nanomaterials and single molecule technologies to understand the etiology of diseases, such as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders, and more specifically, his interest is in exploring intracellular mechanisms related to epigenetics, phosphorylation, and protein aggregation in live cells.
