The Biomedical Engineering Society’s Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Special Interest Group has recognized Assistant Professor Madeleine Oudin as an exceptional junior principal investigator and future leader in the CMBE field.
Oudin joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering as an assistant professor in January 2018. Her lab investigates cancer metastasis and how cancer becomes resistant to drugs designed to prevent spreading. Her lab’s interdisciplinary approach to studying cancer progression incorporates cell biology, translational research, and bioengineering with innovative technologies such as intravital imaging, 3D CRIPSR screens, microfluidics, and implantable devices.
She will present her research and receive the award from the BMES-CMBE at the 2020 CMBE conference on January 2-6 in Puerto Rico. The conference will bring together researchers with a common goal of understanding and engineering molecules, cells, and their microenvironments in the pursuit of improving the practice of medicine.
