(2015-2017) - MENTOR: Melina Kibbe, MD

Dr. Mansukhani’s research is on applications of nanotechnology for the treatment of atherosclerosis.  The overall goal of his project is to develop a novel nanofiber capable of targeting and delivering highly concentrated therapies specific to sites of atherosclerosis to induce cholesterol efflux and atherosclerotic plaque regression. If successful this therapy will obviate the need for chronic medical therapy and costly, invasive procedures. Dr. Mansukhani is a T32 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Vascular Surgery Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University.
