The Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry Department welcomes two new faculty
Dear Pharmaceutics Community,
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Yue Lu and Dr. Alphonsus Ng to the Faculty of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry Department.
Dr. Yue Lu is an Assistant Professor in the Department. She received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Nanjing University, and Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina (NC) State University, under the guidance of Dr. Zhen Gu in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. James R. Heath at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle and at Caltech. Yue is the recipient of the Graduate Research Advances in Delivery Science Award from the Controlled Release Society, the Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad, and the Distinguished Graduate Dissertation Award from NC State College of Engineering. Taking a unique tissue-centric systems biology approach, her lab will use quantitative microscopy, data driven modeling, and controlled drug delivery to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of disease progression, gain a systems view of treatment response, and develop effective therapeutic strategies and formulations for cancer and infectious diseases.
