Luis Solorio, Ph.D.

  • Ph.D., Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, 2012.
  • M.S. Biomedical Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2007.
  • B.S. Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry, Saint Louis University, 2006.

My current work is focused on the application of engineering principles to help bridge the gaps that exist between laboratory research and clinical practice. Specifically, my research is  focused on the development of novel microenvironments to provide specific cues to cancer cells.  The systems I have developed can be used to understand the environmental factors that drive phenotypic changes in cancer, how cues within the cellular microenvironment influence those changes, and how those changes affect the response of cancer to therapeutic treatment.
