Petit Institute Adds New Professor
The Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience has grown by one world-class researcher with the recent addition of Ravi Kane to its multidisciplinary community of scientists and engineers.
Kane is a brand new professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (where he is the Kathy and Garry Betty Faculty Chair), having lately arrived at the Georgia Institute of Technology following 14 years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he headed the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
Before taking his career to Rensselaer, Kane served a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard. He graduated with distinction from Stanford with a B.S. in chemical engineering and earned his graduate degrees in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Kane is interested in research at the interface of biotechnology and nanotechnology. His work has focused on the engineering of therapeutics (polyvalent molecules and viral gene delivery vectors) and the molecular engineering of bio-surfaces and nanostructures.
The addition of Kane brings the number of Petit Institute faculty to 173.
