LABORATORY FOR IMMUNOMODULATORY BIOMATERIALS
MERGING NANOTECHNOLOGY AND IMMUNE ENGINEERING TO CREATE NOVEL PHARMACEUTICALS
We are not currently recruiting Ph.D. students or postdocs students for Fall 2022/Spring 2023.
Our objective is to build a multidisciplinary team of scientists from fields including systems biology, immunology, biomedical engineering, polymer chemistry, and biomaterials, to create world-changing treatments and devices.
The Pearson Lab is focused on developing strategies for treating dysregulated immune responses such as allergy, inflammation, and cancer through the intersection of two enabling disciplines, nanotechnology and immune engineering.
