Adam Bush

DPhil Student (2nd Year) – Oxford MRC-DTP

Academic BackgroundAdam Bush

Adam graduated with an MEng in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford in June 2019 with First Class Honours. In 2018 Adam became the first member of Keble College to be awarded the Laidlaw Scholarship, and undertook a research project at the Arvanitis Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Supervised by Professor C. Arvanitis and Y. Guo, his work studied the pharmacokinetic modelling of chemotherapeutics in the brain tumour microenvironment (TME) following focused ultrasound blood-brain barrier disruption (FUS-BBBD). A presentation on this study was given at the Sheldonian Theatre in October 2018. Adam also worked within the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Group at the University of Oxford in 2017 studying variability in Venusian atmospheric properties.

Adam was awarded the Bennett Prize in Engineering Science from Keble College in 2019 as a result of his Master’s research project, in which he developed a computational model for studying the mechanics of acoustic droplet vaporization (ADV). He joined the BUBBL Group in October 2019 as a recipient of the Oxford-MRC DTP scholarship, and is supervised by Professor Eleanor Stride and Professor Robin Cleveland. His research aims to enhance immunotherapeutic treatments by using encapsulated oxygen to treat localized hypoxia in solid tumours.
