Abhishek Jain is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University. He obtained his B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, MS in Mechanical Engineering from Arizona State University and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University. He conducted his PhD research in Steele Lab for Tumor Biology at Harvard Medical School where he discovered the unique blood transport and rheological principles near post-capillary venules in vivo and applied those principles for making rare cell separation methods with microfluidic devices. As a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University, he married the organs-on-chip technology developed at the Donald Ingber Lab to the field of vascular biology and thrombosis and came up with devices for blood clot monitoring in the clinic, preclinical research and development of novel therapeutics. Abhishek Jain is an author of 13 publications (Nature Communication, Nature Biotechnology etc.) and 3 patents (1 awarded).
