FRET 2017 Workshop Travel Awardees

2017-03-01_Biography_picture_HCS.JPGAndreas Alberti is currently a PhD Candidate at the Department of Chemical Engineering of University of Virginia. His current research at Prof. Giorgio Carta’s Laboratory focuses on investigating the “Capture and Purification of Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) by Chromatography”. Andreas Alberti holds a Master of Science in Process Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Z├╝rich, Switzerland).


Nattawut.jpgNattawut Sinsuebphon is a PhD student at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). He earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree with first class honors from Chiang Mai University in Thailand. His current PhD research at Intes Functional and Molecular Optical Imaging Laboratory at RPI focuses on near-infrared fluorescence lifetime imaging for pre-clinical studies. Specifically, he is working on implementation of macroscopic fluorescence lifetime imaging (MFLI) technique for quantitative FRET application in small animals to statically and dynamically evaluate receptor-ligand engagement for in vivo non-invasive assessment of drug delivery.


wenfan.jpgWenfan Ke is a graduate student in Biology Ph.D. program at the Department of Biology, University of Virginia, VA. He received his bachelor degree in Biology at University of Iowa, IA, in 2014, and he worked in Dr. Fang Lin’s lab on G protein signaling, Dr. Douglas Houston’s lab on Wnt signaling and Dr. Pamela Geyer’s lab on nuclear architecture as his undergraduate and post undergraduate research. Recently, Wenfan finished his rotation study in Dr. Eyleen O’rourke’s lab and started his second rotation study in Dr. Sarah Kucenas’ Lab in University of Virginia. Microscopy imaging is his personal interest and he has extensive experience on confocal microscopy throughout his past studies. He is looking forward to learn more about FRET/FLIM and imaging processing techniques in the 2017 Annual FRET/FLIM Workshop.
