Joshua Freedman, PhD

Josh researched the development of magnetic carbon nanotube based biological probes. This work gives biologists new capabilities to transfer fluids to and from intracellular regions which may advance the fields of molecular diagnostics, cellular biology, and pharmacology. He collaborated with members of the material science dept., chemistry dept., and medical school in research efforts aimed at the integration of biology and nanotechnology. Josh is a two-time winner of the National Science Foundations IGERT fellowship, Drexel University Dean’s fellowship, the Dean’s Award for Best Poster of Research Day 2006, and National Science Foundations GRFP Honorable Mention 2006. He joined the group in 2005.
