Dr. H. Tom Soh Named Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Senior Investigator
February 8, 2017
Dr. H. Tom Soh, Professor of Radiology (Early Detection), of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering, has been named a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Senior Investigator. The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub has announced 19 Stanford faculty among its first cohort of 47 investigators from Bay Area university collaborators. These investigators will work toward curing, preventing and managing every disease.
Dr. Soh has devised sensors capable of continuously monitoring specific biomolecules in vivo and a control system for achieving real-time closed-loop controlled drug delivery in live animals. He plans to generate detection systems for hitherto untargetable biomolecules and to develop real time sensors that can be implanted in vivo to detect multiple biomolecules that are medically important.
The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub is a nonprofit medical independent research organization created by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative as a collaboration among Stanford University, UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley. In addition to its Investigator Program, the CZ Biohub is pursuing large-scale collaborative projects, including the Infectious Disease Initiative, directed by Peter Kim, professor of biochemistry at Stanford, and the Cell Atlas. It will also provide a physical space at its main facility in the San Francisco Mission Bay and at a smaller facility on the Stanford campus.
Congratulations, Dr. Soh!
