The People of Tulane Cancer Center Research
Damir B. Khismatullin, PhD
Dr. Khismatullin received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Bashkir State University (Ufa, Russia) in 1994 and 1998, respectively. He came to the United States in 2000 as a NSF-NATO Postdoctoral Fellow and developed his career in biomedical sciences working as a research faculty member at Boston University, Virginia Tech, and Duke University. He joined Tulane University as associate professor of biomedical engineering in the summer of 2008. His previous projects and expertise includes contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging and other biomedical applications of gas microbubbles, leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions in inflammation, and biorheology.
