Dr. Shuichi Takayama is a professor having a joint appointment in Department of Biomedical Engineering and Macromolecular Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He holds a M.S (1994) and a B.S. (1992) from University of Tokyo. He earned his Ph.D. in 1998 in chemistry and chemical biology from the Scripps Research Institute, where he studied enzymes in organic synthesis and glycobiology. His postdoctoral work was at Harvard University as a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fellow working at the interface of surface science, microfluidics, and cell biology. He has won several awards including 2009 College of Engineering George J Huebner Jr Research Excellence Award, 2006 Biomedical Engineering Department Award for Outstanding Accomplishment, 2004 Collegiate Inventors Mentor Award, 2003 NSF CAREER Award, and 2002 Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award. His research has been sponsored by NIH, NSF, ARMY, USDA, MEDC, Coulter Foundation, Whitaker Foundation, Wilson Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
