Dr. Yu-Ping Wang Receives $3.7 Million to Study Osteoporosis and Mental Illness September, 2014

Dr. Yu-Ping Wang Receives $3.7 Million to Study Osteoporosis and Mental Illness Dr. Yu-Ping Wang, an associate professor in our department, recently received two grants from the National Institutes of Health to study disease related genetic alterations. Since his arrival in 2010, Dr. Wang has been at the forefront of applying engineering approaches to solve medical problems. His Multiscale Bioimaging and Bioinformatics Laboratory, located in Tulane’s School of Public Health, has been a catalyst for collaborations between computational scientists, statisticians, and medical geneticists. Dr. Wang’s funded research aims to identify genetic mutations and biomarkers in the targeted treatment of osteoporosis and the prediction of mental illness.

Dr. Kristin Miller Joins the Department August, 2014

Dr. Kristin Miller Joins the Department

Dr. Kristin Miller joined our biomedical engineering department as an assistant professor in July 2014. Her research interests span from orthopedics to women’s reproductive health, and she is already nationally recognized as a leader in her field. Symbolic of her laboratory’s locations within both the School of Science and Engineering and the School of Medicine, Dr. Miller’s laboratory will combine computational and experimental approaches to better understand the importance of soft tissue mechanics in tissue engineering and regeneration. Before arriving at Tulane, Dr. Miller was a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University. She received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and her bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University. When she is not in the laboratory or the classroom, you can usually find playing water polo, swimming, or trying to find some waves to body surf.
