Omar F. Khan

Hi, my name is Omar F. Khan, and I'm currently at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I work in the labs of Professors Robert Langer and Daniel G. Anderson within the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research. I did my PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Professor Michael V. Sefton.

I work towards the treatment of damaged tissues and organs by combining nanotechnology and tissue engineering. I also make universal vaccine platforms using my nanotechnology. Recently, my work was featured in the Koch Institute Public Galleries at MIT. To see a brief video of me describing some of my nanotechnology work, click here.
