PROFESSORS LOOKING FOR RESEARCH STUDENTS

Here are only a couple of professors looking for students however, many of our professors are looking generally for graduate students interested in Biomedical Engineering research.  A list of our professors may be found on our Admissions Information & Instruction site at http://umanitoba.ca/biomedical_engineering/prospective_students/index.html > please look in the right-hand nav-bar for links to our professors and their research.

 


Dr. Rasit Eskicioglu

                         http://smartbiomaterials.ca/

EMAIL:           song.liu@umanitoba.ca

The Liu Group has openings for self-motivated Ph.D. students. The positions involve research on the synthesis of novel antimicrobial magnetic nanoparticles, the synthesis of block-polymer based nanoparticles with selective binding affinity with bacteria and the fabrication of core-shell nanofibrous membranes for targeted and responsive drug delivery.

Dr. Hagar Labouta

RESEARCH: https://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/pharmacy/staff/labouta.html

EMAIL:         Hagar.Labouta@umanitoba.ca


There are current opportunities for graduate students in the area of nanomedicine with projects focusing on the use of nanoparticles to breach the biological barriers. Students with prior research experience/publications and experience in cell culture techniques are encouraged to apply.

 


Dr. Frederick A. Zeiler

RESEARCH:   https://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/units/surgery/research-overview.html

EMAIL:           Frederick.Zeiler@umanitoba.ca

 

Currently there are opportunities for both MSc and PhD students in BME, with projects focused on cerebral physiologic signal acquisition and processing healthly and traumatic brain injury patients. Students with interests/backgrounds in engineering, signal processing, computer science, medical and biological sciences are encouraged to apply.

For more information regarding some of the available projects, see:  https://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/units/surgery/research-overview.html

If interested, please email Dr. Zeiler at:  Frederick.Zeiler@umanitoba.ca

 


Dr. Tabrez Siddiqui

RESEARCH:   http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/units/physiology/contacts/8986.html  

EMAIL:           tabrez.siddiqui@umanitoba.ca 

 

The Siddiqui laboratory is interested in learning how nerve cell connections known as “synapses” form and function in the developing and adult brain. Synapses are the fundamental units for information processing in the brain. Evidence from genetic studies, animal models and post-mortem human tissue indicate impairment of synapse development and synaptic dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.
