Precision medicine is an emerging approach that matches patients with the most appropriate treatment based on the precise molecular features of an individual patient’s disease. Despite huge advances in translational research, diagnosis and treatment continue to pose profound challenges in addressing significant health problems, including cancer and infectious diseases. In this talk, I will discuss two research projects that demonstrate chemical and biomolecular engineering efforts toward precision medicine. The first utilizes a novel programmable multi- therapy release strategy for controlled drug delivery from orthopedic implants, enabling both bacterial eradication at the bone-hardware interface and accelerated bone tissue regeneration. The second focuses on new development in diagnosis: bioanalytical sensing of plasma markers predictive of impending sepsis based on a magneto-electrochemical approach. These studies highlight the potential of integrating chemical engineering, biochemistry, and clinical science approaches to develop advanced diagnostics and innovative therapies for precision medicine.

Jouha Min

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) / Harvard Medical School

Jouha Min received her BS from Cornell University, and her PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT (Advisors: Paula T. Hammond and Richard D. Braatz). She then joined Dr. Ralph Weissleder’s lab as a postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) / Harvard Medical School in Boston, where she has made some exciting developments in translational research. Her research interests include the development of advanced therapeutic biomaterials, new tools for early disease detection and molecular profiling, and modeling methods for systems analysis.
