Wednesday and Thursday, 3:30 - 5:00 PM
Dr. Won H. (Jon) Suh is an assistant professor in the Bioengineering Department at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. Prior to joining Temple as a faculty member, Dr. Suh was an assistant project scientist and postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley (2009-2012) in the Department of Bioengineering. He was an Otis Williams Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioengineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara (2008-2010), which is where he started working in the area of stem cell engineering, biomaterials research, bionanotechnology, nanomedicine, and nanotoxicology. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2006) and received his M.S. (2002) and B.S. (1998) degrees from Seoul National University. His current research focuses on developing enabling technologies (e.g., biomaterials, nanomaterials, biomolecules) for adult stem cell research.
