The TANMS family would like to welcome Professor Dino Di Carlo and graduate students, Reem Khojah and Yilian Wang, as the newest members of our 3D Thrust. Professor Di Carlo is a Professor in the department of Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering interdepartmental graduate program at the University of California, Los Angeles. He received his B.S. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2002 and received a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Berkeley and San Francisco in 2006. He then conducted postdoctoral studies from 2006-2008 at the Center for Engineering in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Among other honors he was awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development award, the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Award, the Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director’s New Innovator Award and Coulter Translational Research Award.

With his expertise in the area of cell sorting and microfluidics, Professor Di Carlo joins the TANMS 3D Thrust to investigate applications of multiferroics in life sciences, particularly in magnetic-based cell sorting.
