Talk Title: #DQEveryChild: A Global Educational Initiative for Promoting Digital Citizenship

Prof. Joshua A. Jackman is an Assistant Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Institute for Convergence at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) in South Korea. He leads the Translational Nanobioscience lab, which is focused on characterizing the interactions of biomacromolecules and nanomaterials with biological systems, and translating scientific insights into engineered solutions to address outstanding needs in medicine, biotechnology, and agriculture. Key research areas include biosensor development, interfacial science, and biophysics. His team also develops pharmaceutical drugs and nanomedicines for infectious disease and immunology applications.
Prof. Jackman has published over 85 papers in top scientific journals, including Nature Materials, Nature Protocols, Nature Communications, Chemical Society Reviews, and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, and filed 8 patents, several of which have been licensed commercially. His research on the development of brain-penetrating antiviral peptides was featured in international media and led to successful technology transfer to a biopharmaceutical company. He has also been awarded fellowships from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, National Science Foundation, and American Liver Foundation, and was named an ACS Nano Junior Fellow.
Before starting his faculty career at SKKU, Prof. Jackman was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He earned his B.S. degree summa cum laude in Chemistry from the University of Florida and his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, where he was a recipient of the Nanyang President’s Graduate Scholarship and MSE Doctorate Technopreneur Award.
