Dr. Farhan Chowdhury is moving to Southern Illinois University Carbondale to start as a tenure-track Assistant Professor


Dr. Chowdhury is an IGB Fellow working with Dr. Taekjip Ha. His background is in cellular mechanics and mechanobiology. He has been utilizing single molecule approaches to investigate the underlying molecular and biophysical mechanism of highly tumorigenic cells. Dr. Chowdhury will start his own lab in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes at Southern Illinois University Carbondale from fall 2015. He plans to establish a highly interdisciplinary research program focusing on the use of single molecule techniques and bioinformatics tools to address some of the outstanding questions in stem cells and cancer mechanobiology.
