Christian Kastrup is an Assistant Professor in the Michael Smith Laboratories and Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the University of British Columbia. He is a member of the Centre for Blood Research and an associate member of the Biomedical Engineering Program. He did his postdoctoral fellowship in Professor Robert Langer’s laboratory at MIT, where he specialized in engineering biomaterials for drug delivery. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago, where he specialized in chemical biology, microfluidics, and blood coagulation. His lab at UBC utilizes biochemical engineering to solve problems related to hemostasis and hemorrhage. They investigate, utilize, and mimic the biochemistry and biophysical dynamics of coagulation to create innovative materials that perform new functions inside of blood vessels, and work to develop treatments for severe hemorrhage. His recent accolades include a New Investigator Award and a Foundation Grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and a Rising Stars in Global Health Award from Grand Challenges Canada.
