Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Solorio received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 2012, his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2007, and his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Saint Louis University in 2006.
Prior to joining Purdue University, Dr. Solorio was a Postdoctoral Research Associate from 2013-2016 at the University of Michigan in the Department of Chemical Engineering, and from 2012-2013, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Radiology at Case Western Reserve University.
His research centers on the development of novel microenvironments to provide specific cues to cancer cells, e.g., environmental factors that drive phenotypic changes in cancer, how cues within the cellular microenvironment influence those changes, and how those changes affect the response of cancer to therapeutic treatments. He has recently received an NIH K award.
