Qin, Shengping

qinShengping Qin received a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Riverside with research emphasis on the mechanical mechanisms of microvasculature damage caused by the asymmetrical oscillations of the constrained microbubbles during shock wave lithotripsy. His current research in Dr. Ferrera’s lab focuses on the interaction of the microbubble and microvessel under Megahertz-ultrasound insonation and the mechanism by which the vascular permeability is increased in ultrasound-mediated target drug delivery with microbubbles. He’s now working on pharmacokinetic imaging using noninvasive techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and fluorescence imaging. Quantitative characterization of liposomal drug delivery systems in vivo at real-time is obtained by establishing the pharmacokinetic models. The effect of ultrasound on the permeability of tumor vasculature is investigated. spqin@ucdavis.edu
