Dr. Adjei is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University. Isaac received his Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine (BME focus), a translation-focused graduate program run by the Cleveland Clinic in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University. His goals are to advance translatable engineering strategies to understand, treat, and diagnose diseases, and in the process, educate the next generation of scientists. His current research focuses on using nanoparticles to modulate tissue microenvironments as a strategy to engineer immune responses in disease. He also develops three-dimensional tumor models to unravel the mechanisms of immune corruption in disease and serve as testbeds for novel strategies to reactivate the immune system. He has published several papers, given talks at national and international conferences, and has several provisional patents to his name. Isaac’s work has been recognized with local and national awards including the Biomedical Engineering Society’s Career Development Award, Postdoctoral Excellence award from the University of Florida, and F31 Predoctoral Fellowship from the National Institute of Health
