Lopamudra is a postdoctoral researcher in Bioinsyst Lab since Summer 2021. She did her PhD at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India and was awarded DST Young Scientist Fellowship by the Department of Science & Technology, India for research at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. Her research interest encompasses modeling the tumor microenvironment using organ-chips to add new mechanistic knowledge and therapeutics. She aspires to join industrial R&D and lead a team of researchers towards successful development of products with biological and/or biomedical applications. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music and traveling.
M.Sc., Biological Sciences, BITS Pilani, 2019
B.E., Chemical Engineering, BITS Pilani, 2019
Stuti joined Bioinsyst in Fall 2021 as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering. Her undergraduate degree is in Chemical Engineering and her master’s degree is in Biological Sciences, both from BITS Pilani, India. Her research interests lie in engineering elliptical vessel chips and studying the role of mural cells in vasculature. Her long-term goal is to practice translational research in the biomedical devices industry. Besides research, Stuti enjoys dancing, origami, cooking and playing badminton.

B.Tech., Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, 2017
TAMU AFS Distinguished Graduate Student Award
Tanmay joined BioinSyst in Fall of 2017 as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering. Prior to joining the lab, he was pursuing his bachelors and masters of technology in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. His research interests include developing patient-specific models of blood vessels to study patient-to-patient variations within different vascular disorders. He has successfully amalgamated next-generation RNA sequencing techniques with patient blood-derived endothelial progenitor cells and organ-chip technology. Tanmay aspires to become an independent researcher while mentoring and leading a team of budding scientists. Apart from academics, he likes singing, listening to music and sketching.

Jim joined BioinSyst in 2019 as a PhD student in BME, after research experience in microfabrication and biomedical device design. Previously, he worked at the FDA while also pursuing M.S. in BME at George Washington University. His research interests lie in designing vascularized microfluidic organ-chips advised by machine and deep learning methods. Jim’s long-term goal is to lead teams that develop translational, xeno-free platforms and tissue-engineered products. He enjoys playing guitar and posting on his dog’s Instagram page when not in the lab.
M.S., Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Louisiana State University, 2021
B.S., Chemical Engineering, Louisiana State University, 2016
Jason joined BioinSyst in July 2021 after completing a Master’s degree in Biological Engineering at Louisiana State University. Prior to that, he completed undergraduate education in Chemical Engineering and also worked as a Process Engineering Specialist. As a joint PhD student with Dr. Jain and Dr. John Cooke at Houston Methodist, he is creating the Vein-Chip and integrating it with next-gen transcriptomic and proteomic analysis to elucidate the mechanisms by which COVID-19 causes endotheliopathy and thrombosis, and follow-up with the discovery of treatment options. After PhD, Jason plans to continue his career in academic research. Outside the lab, he plays soccer and sand volleyball.
B.Tech., Engineering Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, 2020
Ankit joined BioinSyst in August 2021 after completing his bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics at IIT Roorkee, and thesis project at EPFL, Switzerland. He is interested in combining artificial intelligence and computer vision with organ chips to develop patient-specific models for predicting the risk of cardiovascular disorders. His long-term goal is to work at the intersection of academia, industry, and medicine to facilitate the development and translation of technologies to support global health. Ankit likes to run, bike, explore trails, and believes that most of our problems can be solved by a good nap.
Abdoulie A Jallow
M. Tech., Biomedical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, 2019
B.Sc., Chemistry, University of The Gambia, 2016
Abdoulie joined BioinSyst in Fall 2022 as a PhD Student in Biomedical Engineering. Prior to that, he worked as a Biosafety Advisor at MRCG at LSHTM for two years. Before joining MRCG at LSHTM, he obtained a Master of Technology in Biomedical Engineering (2019) at IIT Bombay and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (2016) at the University of The Gambia. Abdoulie’s research interests are in the design and integration of microfluidics devices with vascular biology to model infectious disease processes such as thrombosis. He would also like to extend and integrate this technology with biosensors to make miniaturized systems for effective disease monitoring and diagnosis in resource-limited settings. Outside the classroom/lab, Abdoulie enjoys playing soccer (football) or cheering on his BLUES (Chelsea FC).
B.Tech., Biomedical Engineering, NIT Rourkela, 2019
Sanjeevani joined Bioinsyst in Fall 2021 as an MS candidate in Biomedical Engineering. Her undergraduate degree is in BME from NIT Rourkela, India. Her research interests lie in creating new tools to introduce complex biological flow patterns within microfluidic devices and discovering endothelial-flow interactions. Sanjeevani’s longer-term goal is to earn a PhD degree. Other than research, she enjoys painting and reading books.
