Chan Young Park, PhD

Chan Young Park, PhD, earned his PhD in his native Korea where he studied biomechanical engineering. During his postdoctoral positions at MIT and Harvard School of Public Health, he explored cell mechanics in various types of human cells. He has also helped develop new tools to quantify cellular mechanical properties. Once he became a research scientist, he began to explore how modulating cellular mechanical properties could work as a therapeutic target for certain diseases such as asthma, cancer, and glaucoma.
