Professor Reátegui bridges engineering disciplines with biology to exploit complex cellular interactions and mechanisms towards the goal of solving unmet needs in life sciences and medicine. The Reátegui research group focuses on the development of translational microtechnologies combining microfluidics, biomaterials, and molecular imaging techniques to help better diagnose, study, and treat cancer and infectious diseases.
Currently, Professor Reátegui is working on expanding the applications of circulating biomarkers not only as a diagnostic tool, but also exploring their role in cancer metastisis and cell-to-cell communication with the immune system.
His doctoral work provided the basis for launching Minnepura Technologies, a start-up at the University of Minnesota. He has three patents.
