Dr. Gottardi leads the Bioengineering and Biomaterials (Bio2) lab, collaborating on clinical and research efforts to offer engineering solutions for pediatric health, primarily treatments for airway disorders. Dr. Gottardi researches mechanisms of laryngotracheal pathologies, applies tissue engineering to improve pediatric conditions, develops new devices, and formulates controlled drug delivery systems to treat and improve patients’ lives.
Dr. Pasha studies the mechanism of spinal deformity development in the pediatric population. She uses analytical and computational methods to better understand the pathogenesis of pediatric scoliosis. Her lab develops medical devices and software packages that can be used in orthopedic clinics worldwide.
Dr. Winston is a pediatrician, engineer, and public health researcher conducting research at the interface of child and adolescent health, injury, engineering, and behavioral science. Her work focuses on traffic injury, and her research to action to impact approach has led to evidence-based digital health to improve health outcomes.
Dr. Tsui's research interests include clinical informatics, natural language processing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, population informatics, data science, signal processing, mobile healthcare, and large real-time clinical production systems. He's published over 100 peer-reviewed papers.
As a bioengineer, Dr. Arbogast's research focuses on pediatric injury biomechanics, injury causation and the effectiveness of safety products for children with a concentration in the safety of children and youth in motor vehicle crashes as well as pediatric concussion.
Dr. Won is the Human Factors Program Manager for the Center for Healthcare Quality and Analytics (CHQA), adjunct assistant professor for the Perelman School of Medicine and the School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, and a senior fellow at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention.
Dr. Tremoulet's current research interests include designing intelligent information systems that use human data (e.g. medical images, vital signs, reaction times, verbal, numerical or abstract reasoning assessments, neurological measures, etc.) to support healthcare and/or to improve job performance by enabling more effective human-machine interaction.
Dr. Lin studies RNA modifications (a.k.a "epitranscriptomics") in human diseases, including cancer. She develops and applies high-throughput sequencing strategies and transcriptome engineering technologies to study the regulation and function of RNA modifications, including A-to-I RNA editing and m6A RNA methylation.
Dr. Jacobs’s current research focuses on several areas, including the biochemical, microbiological, and genetic cause of scarring or stenosis of the laryngotracheal airway, and the development of tissue-engineered cartilage and other novel biomaterials for laryngotracheal reconstruction. Dr. Jacobs is also investigating the mitigation of button battery injuries in infants and children
Dr. Tunç is a computational scientist investigating the application of machine learning and statistical data analysis in various domains such as digital phenotyping, nature of psychopathology, and neuroimaging. He participates in studies using normative, developmental, and clinical samples to parse heterogeneity in psychiatric disorders by developing novel computational techniques.
