Prof. Borden is taking sabbatical leave to work with Piero Tortoli at the University of Florence in Italy. He plans to write a book on microbubbles and learn some electrical engineering of ultrasound devices.
In early June, Prof. Borden gave a talk on sonoporation at the 2016 ACS Colloids symposium at Harvard.
Lab alumni and new Assistant Professor James Kwan is looking for outstanding postdoc candidates to join his laboratory in Singapore. Please follow the link below:
This paper reports the outstanding work of Tim Segers, Michel Versluis and coworkers of the Physics of Fluids group at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. I was honored to play a small role on this watershed study, which successfully achieved high-production microfluidic generation of lipid-coated microbubbles. Surprising results include Ostwald ripening to a programmable stable diameter and modification of the shell elasticity with multiple sonication bursts.
Kang-Ho Song successfully defended his PhD! He is finishing some work at NIH, but plans to attend the graduation ceremony in May. We look forward to giving him a proper send-off party!!!
Congratulations to James Kwan on his new position as Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at NTU Singapore.
This book chapter gives an overview of rational design for lipid-coated microbubbles and nanodrops:
A collaboration with Corey Neu and Virginia Ferguson for this review article on elastography:
This chapter describes the theory of plasmonic nanoparticle induced heating to induce microbubble resonance:
Dr. Shashank Sirsi (lab alumnus, and now Assistant Professor of BME at UT Dallas) is looking for enthusiastic research assistants and graduate students to start immediately. Dr. Sirsi is an outstanding young investigator with very innovative ideas, and the new UT Dallas/Southwestern MC group (including Dr. Robert Mattrey and Dr. Kenneth Hoyt) and is set to become a center of excellence in ultrasound imaging and theranostics.
