Recruitment of First-Time, Tenure-Track Faculty Members
August 16, 2017
There is no simple diagnostic screen for most gynecological cancers, with the exception of a Pap test for cervical cancer. By the time women experience symptoms of uterine or endometrial cancers, often they have spread too far to be easily treated.
But now a biomedical engineer at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering is working to develop a device that could enable much earlier detection of gynecological cancers in a minimally invasive fashion. Rohith Reddy was recruited in 2017 with the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT from Harvard Medical School, where he was a postdoctoral fellow.
