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!
We are interested in Computer-Assisted Tissue Engineering, Predictive Modeling of Stem Cell Behavior, and Single Cell Control of Migration. Currently we are working on Fabricating Microfluidic Devices that serve as Mimics of the In Vivo Environment.
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.
Prof. Voronov’s PhD student Long Pham and 2014 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry (“for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy”) Eric Betzig, at the Lattice Light Sheet Workshop at Janelia Farm Research Campus in Ashburn, VA, February, 2016.
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)
