Princess U II Imoukhuede
Dr. Imoukhuede completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2011, earned a PhD in Bioengineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2008, and received an SB in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2002. Dr. Imoukhuede is an assistant professor in the Bioengineering Department at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign.
Dr. Imoukhuede’s research applies systems biology to study clinically relevant questions in cancer and cardiovascular disease. The laboratory engineers fluorescent nanosensors that quantitatively characterize the vascular microenvironment and develops computational models that integrate those molecular and cellular data to inform on the processes occurring in vascular pathologies. These systems biology methods, experimental and computational, are used to predict the efficacy of angiogenic therapeutics and to identify novel drug targets and treatment schemes.
