Ming Chen, PhD
He got his Ph.D from University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth in 2009. Before joining Dr. Amiji’s group, he was a Research Fellow in Dr. Martin Yarmush’s group at the Center for Engineering Medicine in Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital/Shriners Childrens Hospital in Boston. Currently, his project focuses on the application of mitochondria-targeted ceramide delivered in tumor-targeted bidegradable engineered polymeric nanoparticles to overcome tumor multi drug resistance (MDR).
He received his Ph.D in Life Sciences from Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) under Osmania University, Hyderabad, India in 2008. Earlier, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Amarillo, Texas on “evaluation of phytochemicals as potential drug candidates”. Presently, his research work focuses on SiRNA delivery and evaluating its therapeutic efficacy in genetically engineered mouse models (GEMM). His main research interests include novel drug target identification, drug development and developing oncology animal models. Linkedin
