Kevin Schilling, Ph.D.

  • Research Engineer 3, CEDAR, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, School of Medicine


Kevin Schilling completed his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester in 2021. During his studies, he utilized imaging techniques, namely two-photon fluorescence lifetime imaging and phosphorescence lifetime imaging to understand local oxygen distribution and the hypoxia niche that impact cellular metabolism, angiogenesis and osteogenesis at the site of cranial bone defect healing. Kevin joins CEDAR as a Postdoctoral Scholar where he plans to use his imaging background to characterize the early tumor microenvironment.
