Siddharth (Sidd) Shenoy, PhD is a Health Science Administrator in the Division of Lung Diseases at National Heart Lung Blood Institute. He served as a Scientific Program Analyst contractor from Columbus Technologies and Services that is supported SPARC Program, BRAIN and HEAL Initatives and Translational Neural Device efforts at NIH/NINDS. He graduated with a BS and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. His PhD research in Dr. Brian Button’s lab at the Marsico Lung Institute revolved around a novel paradigm of testing air-flow velocities associated with breathing and cough using human lung epithelial cells in an ex vivo lung bioreactor model using hi-speed videography and particle tracking methodologies. Recently, as a postdoctoral fellow, he gained additional translational pre-clinical and clinical experience at the Wilmer Eye Institute at the Center for Nanomedicine at Johns Hopkins University under the guidance of Professor Justin Hanes and Dr. Jung Soo Suk. He investigated the relationship between microstructural (e.g. pore size) properties of mucus revealed by particle tracking non-mucoadhesive nanoparticles with key clinical pulmonary outcomes in patients with pulmonary exacerbations. With a background in electromechanical design, machining, microelectronics, electrophysiology and computer programming, he has mentored design teams across the globe in COVID19 design competitions hosted by Johns Hopkins University and Massachusetts Institutes of Technology. Utilizing these experiences, he will be teaching a course on Advanced Pulmonary Therapeutics at Engineering for Professionals Department in the Whiting School of Engineering, Johns Hopkins University.
