Yevgeny is a Joint Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNC – Chapel Hill and NC State – Raleigh. He earned dual B.A. degrees in Chemistry and Biophysics with minors in Math and Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Biology at Harvard University, developing directed evolution technologies with Prof. David R. Liu. From there, he went on to do a postdoctoral fellowship at the Wyss Institute at Harvard with Prof. David Mooney, developing controlled release drug delivery technologies for cancer and regenerative medicine. He joined UNC/NC State in 2017, with research interests that span materials science, immunotherapy, and cellular manufacturing. Dr. Brudno’s research is rooted in the belief that advances in chemistry and the basic molecular sciences can generate meaningful change in how therapies are designed, produced, and administered.
