My name is Donald Belcher and I am a researcher investigating how chemical and physical signals dictate drug resistance in the tumor microenvironment. I will use this knowledge to aid in the development of novel drugs and biomaterials for use as cancer treatment. I obtained my B.S in chemical engineering from Oklahoma State University where I developed waste treatment technologies to deactivate Ascaris Lumbricoides. After this, I moved to The Ohio State University where I received my PhD in the Andre Palmer Research Laboratory. In my graduate research, I investigated how bioengineered hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers can make chemotherapeutics more effective for breast cancer treatment. IN the past few years I developed curriculum for the Ohio State unit operations laboratory and several volunteer courses to help my colleagues out with skills in object oriented programming and finite element modelling.
