Carle Illinois College of Medicine professor and research mentor, Huimin Zhao, has developed CRISPR-based technology that “knocks out” yeast genes with single-point precision – offering potential benefits to industries that use the yeast to produce ethanol, chemicals, lubricants and pharmaceuticals.
Jenny Amos has been selected to receive the 2018 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Illinois-Indiana Section Outstanding Teaching Award—one of 12 regional ASEE teaching awards nationwide.
Inspired by the eye of the morpho butterfly, a new camera that can see both visible and infrared light could help surgeons more easily identify cancerous tissue.
Several Carle Illinois College of Medicine faculty members have been recognized for their excellence in teaching, being named to the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning’s List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent.

Researchers, including Carle Illinois College of Medicine research mentor Wilfred van der Donk, say they can now produce a vast library of unique cyclic compounds, some with the capacity to interrupt specific protein-protein interactions that play a role in disease. The new compounds have cyclic structures that give them stability and enhance their ability to bind to their targets.
Rashid Bashir, executive associate dean of the Carle Illinois College of Medicine and Grainger Distinguished Chair of Bioengineering has been selected as a Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) fellow, in recognition of his research contributions in the broad field of BioMEMS and biomedical nanotechnology.
In his role as a medical education facilitator, Dr. Kashif Ahmad says he is excited to develop different teaching techniques that enhance students’ learning and contribute to the new college of medicine’s engineering-infused curriculum. Read more on his research below.
