Our speakers

From research institutions and companies across the globe, we are happy to introduce you to our speakers for QSense User Meeting 2020. 

Nam-Joon-Cho

Professor Nam-Joon Cho
Nanyang Technologial University, Singapore

The important work of Professor Nam-Joon Cho and his team has truly advanced translational research. Using engineering approaches has been proven successful in solving challenging biomedical problems and to combat infectious diseases. By creating artificial membrane and tissue platforms to probe biological systems, they can translate the findings into enhanced therapeutic and drug delivery options that more effectively target infectious diseases, inflammatory disorders, and cancer. You will hear Professor Nam-Joon Cho on Emerging Approaches to Fabricate Supported Lipid Bilayers: Moving Beyond Vesicles.
