Featured Scientist

Dr. David Hormuth

David Hormuth, Ph.D., joined The University of Texas at Austin in April of 2016 as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Intsitute for Computational Engineering and Sciences. He received a Biomedical Engineering degree from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN and then completed a M.S. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in 2016. Dr. Hormuth completed his doctoral research at the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science.

His research focuses on developing predictive mathematical models of glioblastoma growth and response to treatment using subject specific measurements acquired through non-invasive imaging. Specifically his research focuses on developing and validating biophysical models at the pre-clinical level in a murine model of glioblastoma. Dr. Hormuth and his wife, Jamie, along with their son, enjoy Austin's parks, breakfast tacos (!), and exploring their new city.
