John Bischof’s research focuses on the thermophysical and biological changes within biomaterials after thermal manipulations. Current projects include:
- the use of iron oxide and gold nanoparticles to enhance thermal therapies
- nanoparticle biodistribution and heating at the cellular and tissue level based on nanoparticle type, coating, size, and charge
Dr. Bischof is a Distinguished McKnight University Professor and the Carl and Janet Kuhrmeyer Chair in Mechanical Engineering. He is also the Associate Director for Development in the Institute for Engineering in Medicine. Dr. Bischof received his PhD, MS and BS from University of California, Berkley.
