Bobak MosadeghPh.D.
  • Associate Professor

Bobak Mosadegh received his B.S. and M.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Irvine.  He performed undergraduate and graduate-level research in Professor Noo Li Jeon’s lab, working on gradient-generating microfluidic devices. Dr. Mosadegh received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor while working in the lab of Shuichi Takayama.  His research involved developing microfluidic integrated circuits and various cell patterning methods using aqueous two-phase systems and microfluidic devices.  Under the guidance of George M. Whitesides, Dr. Mosadegh performed his postdoctoral training at Harvard University and the Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering.  His research focused on developing two technologies, i) a 3D paper-based cell culture system for the study of the effects of ischemic gradients on cancer cells and cardiomyocytes, and ii) actuators and control systems for soft robotics. Dr. Mosadegh started as an assistant professor in the department of radiology, Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM), in Nov. 2014. He is currently an associate professor. He is a member of the Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging, and convener for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) working group on cardiac occluders.

Lab Goals 

The Mosadegh lab has recently focused on developing next-generation medical devices for surgical and minimally invasive procedures. These devices are designed to provide unprecedented performance by leveraging enabling technologies such as 3D printing, soft robotics, machine learning and mixed reality. Historically, the lab also has expertise in soft robotic actuators and control systems for a broad number of applications, as well as in microfluidics and 3D cell-culture for applications in drug discovery using organs-on-chips platforms.
