Mikhail Shapiro, Ph.D.
Professor of Chemical Engineering
Heritage Medical Research Institute
California Institute of Technology

Many important biological processes occur deep inside living organisms. Their study requires technologies to image and manipulate cellular and molecular function non-invasively. To develop such technologies, we pursue fundamental advances at the interface of molecular and cellular engineering with various forms of physical energy: magnetic, mechanical, thermal and chemical. Our work takes advantage of naturally evolved biological structures with unique physical properties, which we use as starting points for engineering. Examples of current research include:

  • Genetically Encoded Reporters for Ultrasound
  • Genetically Encoded Reporters, Devices and Basic Mechanisms of MRI and Magnetic Actuation
  • Ultrasonic and Thermal Control of Biological Systems

The Bioengineering Seminar Series is co-hosted by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University.
