Mikhail Shapiro, Ph.D. is a Professor of Chemical Engineering, an Investigator of the Heritage Medical Research Institute, and director of the Center for Molecular and Cellular Medicine at the California Institute of Technology. The Shapiro laboratory develops biomolecular technologies allowing cells to be imaged and controlled inside the body using ultrasound to enable the study of biological function and the development of cell-based diagnostic and therapeutic agents.

This session was moderated by Dr. Alfred Yu, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Waterloo, Canada and the Director of Laboratory on Innovative Technology in Medical Ultrasound (LITMUS). His research interests include therapeutic ultrasound biophysics and sonoporation-mediated drug delivery. Dr. Yu’s scientific research is recognized by various prestigious prizes, including the Frederic Lizzi Award from ISTU, the IEEE Ultrasonics Early Career Investigator Award, and the Ontario Early Career Researcher Award. He is a dedicated contributor to the ultrasonics community. Between 2013-2016, he was a member of the standing program committee for ISTU’s annual symposium, and he was the basic science track organizer of ISTU’s inaugural Education Day event in 2014. He is currently an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics & Frequency Control, an Editorial Board Member of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, and the Medical Ultrasound Group Chair of IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium.
