Internationally famous biomedical operative joins UCLA School of Dentistry …

Posted by Z Dental Group - August 2nd, 2012

August 1, 2012 – The UCLA School of Dentistry welcomed new imagination member, Dr. Dean Ho, to their organisation of world-renowned dentist-scientists and oral health researchers, effective Jul 1, 2012. Ho was allocated to highbrow in a Division of Oral Biology and Medicine and a Division of Advanced Prosthodontics, Biomaterials and Hospital Dentistry during a School of Dentistry. Dr. Ho also was allocated a co-director of a Jane and Jerry Weintraub Center for Reconstructive Biotechnology – a examine core during a School.

In his role, Ho will assistance lead a School of Dentistry in building a biomaterials scholarship and bioengineering Center of Excellence. His imagination in nanomedicine and a focus of diamond-based platforms for recovering drug smoothness and imaging will offer as a substructure for a translational examine efforts in a margin of biomedical engineering during a School of Dentistry. The extended applications of his nanomaterial platforms also will catalyze collaborative initiatives with several other schools of a UCLA examine community.

Ho leads an internationally-recognized organisation focused on a expansion of nanodiamond platforms for drug smoothness and imaging. His examine organisation has grown mixed approaches for improving recovering potency and reserve regulating a nanodiamond vehicle. Applications have enclosed gene delivery, recovering protein recover for intensity wound recovering use, and many notably, cancer therapy. Ho’s examine achievements have been lonesome on a homepages of CNN and NPR and, many recently on a cover of Science Translational Medicine.

“With Dr. Ho’s imagination in biomedical engineering and nanomedicine, a UCLA School of Dentistry has positioned itself to be a personality in a examine and expansion of drug therapies regenerative hankie growth, branch cells and nanotechnology,” says Dean No-He Park. “Dr. Ho will not usually be a profitable item to a School of Dentistry and a UCLA campus though also to a margin of health sciences.”

Ho binds both a doctorate and a master’s grade in biomedical engineering, and a bachelor’s grade in physiological sciences, all from UCLA. After receiving his PhD, Ho became a examine associate during a California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in a Department of Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering as good as a postdoctoral examine associate during a California NanoSystems Institute during UCLA.

Before entrance to a School of Dentistry, Ho was an associate highbrow in a Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering in a Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science and a member of a Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center during Northwestern University. He also has hold a visiting highbrow appointment in a Department of Biomedical Engineering during Peking University in Beijing.

 “The examine work now being finished during a School of Dentistry is slicing corner and we wish to mix this and my credentials in biomedical engineering and drug smoothness systems to creation advancements in cancer diagnosis and diagnosis,” says Ho.

Ho has given several lectures during countless conferences around a universe on his work and has authored some-more than 100 publications, an considerable volume for a chairman his age. He is a target of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, a Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Translational Research Award (Phase we and II), a John G. Bollinger Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award of a Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and a Distinguished Young Alumnus Award from a UCLA School of Engineering and Applied Science. Most recently, Ho was awarded an Endowed Fellowship by a Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening to settle a examine module that aims to rise new drugs and cancer therapies.

Ho also has seemed on a National Geographic Channel module Known Universe that aired domestically and internationally, and is now editor-in-chief of a Journal of Laboratory Automation.

The UCLA School of Dentistry is dedicated to improving a oral health of a people of California, a republic and a universe by a teaching, research, studious caring and open use initiatives. The propagandize provides preparation and training programs that rise leaders in dental education, research, a contention and a community; conducts examine programs that beget new knowledge, foster oral health and examine a cause, prevention, diagnosis and diagnosis of oral illness in an individualized disease-prevention and government model; and delivers patient-centered oral health caring to a village and a state.
