Assistant Professor Ankur Singh received research excellence award
Research Excellence Awards given out to faculty at the 2018 College of Engineering Faculty Reception and Meeting held on December 4, 2018
Ankur Singh is an Assistant Professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. Dr. Singh has strong expertise in the engineering of biomaterials-based platforms for cell and immune modulation, cell-biomaterial interactions, cell adhesion, stem cell engineering, and vaccines. He received his postdoctoral training at Georgia Tech where he employed engineering and molecular cell biology principles to understand human stem cell reprogramming and differentiation, stem and mature cell adhesion, force response and mechanotransduction. Dr. Singh received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. His research has established multi-modal, biomaterials-based functionalized hydrogel and microparticle to enhance the potency of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Hepatitis vaccines.
Dr. Singh's "Immunotherapy and Cell Engineering Lab (ICEL)" focuses on engineering immune and therapeutic cells by integrating innovative materials and core concepts of cell immunology, biomechanics, and force transmission. The overall goal of ICEL is to understand the fundamentals of cell-material interactions, underlying cell mechanics, signaling, and to establish novel micro-nano-bioengineering strategies to generate therapeutic cells and engineered tissues. We will achieve this by working at the interface of biomaterials, microfluidics and microfabrication, immune cells, stem cells, and mechanotransduction, Specific research focus includes:
1. Immune-engineering: Materials and Molecular Engineering for Modulating Immunity.
2. Engineering Human Stem Cells.
3. Micro-Nano-Bioengineering for Cell-Matrix Interactions and understanding cell adhesion.
