Welcome to the Lin Research Group in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The lab is located adjacent to Indiana University School of Medicine at Indianapolis, the capital city of the State of Indiana.
We are part of the IUPUI Purdue School of Engineering & Technology and are affiliated with Indiana University School of Medicine (IU Simon Cancer Center & Indiana Center for Diabetes & Metabolic diseases) and the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University.
Our research focuses on designing multifunctional polymeric biomaterials, including hydrogels, nanoparticles, and cell surface coatings, for releasing therapeutically relevant agents and for delivering adult, stem, and progenitor cells for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. Our research projects are highly interdisciplinary and integrate knowledge from polymer chemistry and engineering, bioconjugate chemistry, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, and immunology.
- The Lin Research Group is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral associate positions in the area of biomimetic hydrogels for dynamic cell culture, gene delivery, and cancer engineering applications. Qualification: A PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Molecular & Cell Biology, or a closely related area. Interested individuals please prepare a cover letter summarizing research experience and future career plan, as well as a detailed CV with names of 3 references. All application materials should be combined in a single PDF file and send to Prof. Lin (email@example.com).
- The Lab welcomes two summer students: Rishi Das (NSF REU program) and Anthony Tam (Indianapolis Project SEED/STEM program). They will be working on various aspects of bioengineered microgels for tissue engineering applications.
- Congratulations to Han, Kevin, and Dustin for successfully defending their MS theses.
