We are engineers and scientists using nanotechnology to improve human health with in vitro tools and in vivo imaging. 


Quick Facts:
  • Emphasis on ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging.
  • 1100 square feet of new lab space in the Structural and Materials Engineering Building on UCSD Engineering Quad (opened in 2012).
  • Now recruiting graduate and undergraduate students as well as postdoctoral fellows.
  • Supported by R00, S10, and DP2 grants from NIH. 

Jesse Jokerst completed a B.S. cum laude at Truman State University. After a Ph.D. in Chemistry at UT Austin with John McDevitt, he completed a postdoc with Sam Gambhir in Stanford Radiology. Now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Nanoengineering at UC San Diego, the Jokerst group is eager to collaborate on projects broadly related to human health and nanotechnology.
