Profile

Eric V. Shusta, Howard Curler Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, eshusta@wisc.edu.

Dr. Shusta received his Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of Illinois where he studied the production and engineering of antibodies and T-cell receptors using yeast.  He followed this with postdoctoral training at the University of California-Los Angeles where he helped pioneer molecular level analyses of the blood-brain barrier.  Currently, Dr. Shusta is the Howard Curler Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering  and Neurological Surgery at the University of Wisconsin.  His research focuses on the development of molecular and cellular engineering tools that can help gain a better understanding of blood-brain barrier transport and function.  He has been recognized by an NSF Career award, the American Chemical Society BIOT division young investigator award, among others, and was recently elected fellow in the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
