TiMe students had the opportunity to interact with Dr. Kirti Kulkarni of the University of Chicago's Cancer Center. Dr. Kulkarni provided them an in-depth understanding of the day-to-day interactions of a radiologist with patients and physician colleagues, and also discussed the complexities of radiological reading. There were conversations and discussions of improvements in radiological and pathological software, and how bioengineering and bioinformatics impact the understanding of disease progressing.
Emily Chen was selected as one of the Mavis Future Faculty Fellows (MF3) for the 2018-2019 academic year. This program is designed to facilitate the training for the next generation of great engineering professors.
Engineering at Illinois is internationally recognized for the impact of our research and the strength of our graduate education. The doctoral programs that produce this reputation are primarily research-focused and may not provide students interested in academic careers with the opportunity to gain the knowledge of how to become a highly productive faculty member.
The TiMe Cohort hosted the second-annual Tissue Microenvironment (TiMe) Day Symposium and Poster Session on April 13, 2018 at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. There were over seventy attendees from 14 departments across campus including guests from industry. The symposium explored different aspects of the tissue microenvironment through six faculty research talks: two by keynote speakers Drs. Steven Altschuler and Lani Wu from UCSF; three plenary talks by Illinois faculty: Drs.

In this work, we report selection of covalent linker on anomeric position of N-azidoacetylmannosamine (ManNAz) for caging its metabolic process. We synthesized DT-diaphorase responsive metabolic...
Authors: Jee-Wei Emily Chen, Jan Lumibao, Audrey Blazek, H. Rex Gaskins and Brendan Harley*Abstract:
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common, aggressive, and deadly form of adult brain cancer, and is associated with a short survival rate (median 12–15 months, 5+ year less than 5%). The complex...
Sisi He and Dr. Erik Nelson recently published a paper on estrogen receptors.
Abstract: Estrogen receptors (ERs) mediate the actions of the steroidal estrogens, and are important for the regulation of several physiological and pathophysiological processes, including reproduction, bone physiology,...
