James Fraser, PhD

Fraser
Associate Professor

I am a biophysicist. My research is focused on discovering the macromolecular structure and dynamics of proteins—defining conformational states essential for function and understanding transitions between these states.

Tejal Desai, PhD

Desai
Professor & Chair

I am a bioengineer focusing on micro and nanofabrication techniques to create new devices for drug and cell delivery as well as biomaterials for cell and tissue regeneration. I also chair the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences.

Shuvo Roy, PhD

Roy
Professor

I am a bioengineer working on medical device development to address clinical needs by leveraging my background in MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) along with advances in biomaterials, electronics, and nanotechnology to advance health world-wide.

Kathy Giacomini, PhD

Giacomini
Professor & CERSI Co-Director

My research focuses on membrane transporters, which are of great importance to drug disposition and response. I am particularly interested in genetic variants in membrane transporters that are determinants of drug response and in harnessing transporters to enhance drug targeting. 

Adam Abate, PhD

Abate
Associate Professor

I use dro­­plet-based microfluidics for directed evolution and massively parallel single cell analysis.

Master of Translational Medicine program gets final UC approval

Two years after launching as a pilot effort, an innovative graduate curriculum in translational medicine jointly offered by UCSF and UC Berkeley has received final approval from University of California President Mark Yudof as a master’s degree program.

Tejal Desai receives Dawson Biotechnology Award

UCSF bioengineer Tejal Desai, PhD, will receive the 2012 Paul R. Dawson Biotechnology Award from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) at the group’s annual meeting in July.

Michael Fischbach and Tejal Desai focus on “micro” solutions to improve health with drugs

Faculty members in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UCSF Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, share their research on the human microbiome and microfabricated drug delivery systems and their hopes for how their science will improve the health of patients.

Symposium on the future of therapeutics inaugurates new UCSF department

In the first symposium held by the newly minted UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, researchers described progress in the fields of systems biology, pharmacogenomics, and bioengineering, and how scientists in these fields are working in concert to develop novel diagnostics and therapeutics to effectively and safely diagnose and treat disease.

Scientists Explain How They Are Making Therapeutics "Intelligent"

UCSF scientists from the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences and UCSF School of Pharmacy Dean Mary Anne Koda-Kimble, PharmD, spoke on June 23, 2009 about how their research is aiming to make therapeutics sophisticated, highly effective, and tailored to the different needs of individuals.
