Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology (MOST), Armory Square, Syracuse, New York

Speaker: Douglas Yung, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering, Syracuse University

Talk Overview: The human body is often viewed as a sophisticated machine. Brain is like a big circuit, heart and lungs are like a pump. With malfunctioning machines, one can easily take things apart, fix and replace the broken components. But how can we
diagnose and treat butterflies in stomach, brain freeze, water on the knee, Charley horse, and the like? Come join Dr. Yung to learn about ways to engineer our human machine!

Biography: Douglas Yung is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University. He pursued a pre-medical curriculum and received BSc in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics/Applied Science from UCLA, and PhD in Bioengineering from the California Institute of Technology. He was awarded the NASA Postdoctoral Fellowship and conducted research at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is interested in deploying microorganisms as little yet powerful machines. He joined Syracuse in 2016 and acts as the program director for the bioengineering undergraduate program. One of his favorite family activities on rainy or snowy days is to visit the MOST.
