Yang Deng's picture

Yang Deng, Ph.D.


Dept of Biomedical Engineering

I received my Ph.D. from Chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 2008. My graduate background was on materials chemistry with a focus on surface modification and characterization on medical devices. I had 3 years’ postdoctoral training on cancer biology in Pharmacology at Yale University. I started my second postdoctoral training at Saltzman lab in the fall of 2011. Currently I am working on designing novel nanoparticles to facilitate the drug delivery for diseases: 1) Surface modification to facilitate target drug delivery; 2) Surface modification to facilitate the nanoparticles across blood brain barrier and mucus; 3) Composite nanoparticles for drug, gene and protein delivery.
