Veeren M ChauhanResearch Fellow at University of Nottingham, USA
Dr Veeren Chauhan is a Research Fellow in the Advanced Materials & Healthcare Technologies (AMHT) division at the School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham. He is currently working as part of the EPSRC Future Targeted Healthcare Manufacturing Hub, aiming to develop transformative solutions for healthcare precision in the biotherapeutics sector. Veeren’s research is focused on the innovation and application of fluorescent nanosensors, to elucidate fundamental microenvironmental biochemical processes. Fluorescent nanosensors have demonstrated their enhanced measurement capabilities to quantify pH, molecular oxygen and temperature in complex model systems, such as the nematodes Caenorhabditis elegans & Pristionchus pacificus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices.
More recently, fluorescent nanosensors have gathered significant attention for monitoring subcellular biochemical changes in human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs). These exciting findings could be readily applied to augment cell and gene therapy manufacture due to the accurate, precise real-time measurements afforded by fluorescent nanosensors.
