PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Dr. Jude M. Phillip is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, with a secondary appointment in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Oncology and is a Core member in the Institute for Nanobiotechnology (INBT) at Johns Hopkins University. His lab studies biological ageing dynamics in the context of health and disease. He combines fundamental engineering approaches with translational ageing and oncology research to develop precision health strategies and technologies to probe ageing, and identify mechanisms to modify ageing trajectories to drive heathy ageing.

He received his B. Eng in Chemical Engineering from City College of New York (CCNY), his PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Johns Hopkins University (JHU). He completed his postdoc at Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) with a focus on hematological malignancies and the lymphoma microenvironment. He started as an Assistant Professor at JHU on September 15th 2020.
