Welcome to the Voronov group

Professor Roman Voronov‘s (PRONOUNCED: VOH-rohn-awf) laboratory at the Otto H. York Department of Chemical, Biological, and Pharmaceutical Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, NJ! Our laboratory has been set up using financial support from the Gustavus and Louise Pfeiffer Research Foundation’s Major Investment grant. Their gracious support is gratefully appreciated!

We are interested in Computer-Assisted Tissue Engineering, Predictive Modeling and Control of Cell Behavior. Currently we are working on Fabricating Microfluidic Devices that serve as Mimics of the In Vivo Environment.  Below is Ph.D. student Long Pham (graduated in 2018) discussing his work in this area:

Additionally, our laboratory is heavily involved with Soft Lightography, Hardware Automation, Super-Resolution Microscopy, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Other projects in the Voronov lab involve understanding the Mechanism of Blood Clot Formation, which is relevant to Thrombo-pathologies such as Strokes, Heart Attacks and Hemophilia.

Voronov's PhD student and Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry

Finally, our laboratory provides invaluable interdisciplinary research experience for high school summer interns and undergraduate researchers. For example, undergraduate research assistant Migle Surblyte’s work has been recently highlighted by NJIT:

To that end, Prof. Voronov is actively involved with the following outreach programs, and has co-authored several publications with students from them: Project SEED (Summer Experience for Economically Disadvantaged), URI (Undergraduate Research Innovation), McNair Achievement Program and Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Global Experience and Training (GET)
