Mario CabodiProf. Mario Cabodi

Dr. Mario Cabodi is a Research Assistant Professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department of Boston University. He received an MSci degree in Physics from Imperial College (London) and a Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University, where he was also a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Chemical Engineering. At Cornell, Dr. Cabodi used micro- and nano-fluidics for analytical separations of biomolecules, and later developed microfluidic techniques for tissue engineering applications. He joined Boston University in 2006 as Deputy Director of the Center for Nanoscience and Nanobiotechnology, and in 2008 joined the research faculty as Research Assistant Professor. At Boston University, he is applying his expertise in nanofabrication to interdisciplinary projects, such as: sample concentration methods for biosensors and point-of-care diagnostics, microfluidics for ultrasound contrast agents, and microfabrication in hydrogels for cancer metastasis models. He has also developed and taught courses in Nanomedicine and Device Design.
