Institute faculty additions build bioengineering, systems biology, and pain medicine

The Sheikh Zayed Institute's initiatives have added an impressive roster of faculty in recent months. Key hires in bioengineering, systems biology, and pain medicine add to the already talented pool of doctors, engineers, and scientists here at Children's National.

The new team members have wide ranging expertise, from the building of nanostructures (microscopic synthetic structures of a variety of shapes, including precise cubes) that could deliver targeted treatments within the body, to the design of computer programs that provide uniform, quantifiable evidence to assist a surgeon in deciding when a child with an abnormality requires complex corrective surgery.
