As a researcher at Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Gustavo Vasquez worked in the development of multi-scale models that integrate partial differential equations with stochastic Markov processes for the study of T cell activation and migration in lymphoid structures. Currently he is developing novel computational and experimental platforms using acoustics in microfluidic devices for the purification of extracellular vesicles relevant for cancer immunobiology and cancer immunotherapy.
Gustavo Vasquez graduated with honors as a biological engineer from Universidad Nacional de Colombia. He worked for 4 years as an associated
researcher in the multi-scale simulations for complex systems research group leaded by Professor Juan Pablo Hernandez-Ortiz as part of the
Material science and technology (CTM) research group at Universidad Nacional de Colombia - Sede Medellin. He also worked as an assistant
professor at different universities in Colombia. Currently he is a graduate student at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering working both in the Swartz and de Pablo groups.
