[Illinois] Translational Nanomedicine in the Interface of Chemistry, Biology, and Engineering

By Dipanjan Pan

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Published on


Prof. Pan joined University of Illinois in fall 2013. Previously, He was an Assistant Professor of Medicine, Research at the Division of Cardiology, Washington University in St. Louis. He also served as a full faculty member of Siteman Cancer Center at the Washington University. After receiving his PhD in Chemistry, he pursued a postdoctoral career in polymer science and nanotechnology at the Department of Chemistry, Washington University in St. Louis. Soon after a brief stint at the industry (General Electric biosciences/Healthcare), Dr. Pan joined the WU faculty in 2007. Prof. Pan’s research is broadly aimed at developing clinically translatable defined nanoparticle platforms for molecular imaging, drug delivery and non viral gene delivery applications.

His research is highly multidisciplinary, which brings skills from synthetic chemistry, nano-engineering, molecular biology and preclinical animal models. He is a co-inventor of several engineered nano-platforms for molecular imaging and therapeutic application. His research covers several imaging modalities including MRI, CT, Optical, PET/SPECT and Photoacoustic imaging. His work has been commercialized for preclinical application.
