Where: Whitaker Hall 218 (Danforth Campus)

Directed control of angiogenesis can improve the treatment of over 70 diseases. Our group contributes to enhancing controlled angiogenesis by (1) engineering of new quantitative fluorescent nanosensors (qFluors) for VEGFR and PDGFR; (2) discovery and measurement of new cross-family interactions between PDGFs and VEGFR2; and (3) development of computational models that accurately predict VEGFR-mediated protein phosphorylation, cell proliferation, and cell migration. IN this talk, I review our advances with quantifying biomarker heterogeneity, with revealing a role for cross-family binding and developing computational models to integrate multiple parameters to predict angiogenic cell response. 

Professor Imoukhuede is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at University of Illinois. Professor Imoukhuede earned her SB in Chemical Engineering from MIT, pursued graduate study in Bioengineering at the California Institute of Technology, and a postdoctoral fellowship in biomedical engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her research on vascular microenvironments and systems biology for target discovery is supported by the NSF and NIH.

Please know that there have been changes to parking on the Danforth Campus due to the east end construction.

Metrolink or biking to the Danforth campus are the easiest options.  

If you choose to drive, the closest parking is in Millbrook garage off of Forest Park Parkway and Throop Drive.  It will take approx. 15 minutes to walk to our building.  Visitor passes can be purchased in The Knight Center on Throop Drive.
