Speaker: Darren Roblyer, Ph.D.
          Boston University
              Boston, MA
Topic: Monitoring chemoresponse and chemoresistance in breast cancer using diffuse optics
Location: Biomedical Engineering Auditorium
Time: 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Dr. Darren Roblyer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. His research is based on the development of near-infrared Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy (DOS) systems to both predict and better understand tumor response and resistance to chemotherapy in cancer patients and in preclinical models.

After receiving a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 2004, Darren received his Ph.D. as a HHMI fellow in 2009 from the Bioengineering Department at Rice University where he studied under Professor Rebecca Richards-Kortum. Prior to starting his faculty position, Darren was a Department of Defense Postdoctoral Fellow at the Beckman Laser Institute at the University of California, Irvine studying under Professor Bruce Tromberg.
