Drug discovery; drug resistance; micro-robots; mini organs
Khojah develops mini-organs featuring novel micro-robotic systems that enable artificial intelligence to be part of the creative process in drug discovery pipelines. Her research aims to understand how the tumor micro-environment orchestrates drug-resistance pathways, which can lead to new insights in cancer prognosis and drug response.
Khojah joined the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering as an Assistant Teaching Professor in 2022. Previously, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Irvine starting in 2021, and a postdoctoral research at UC Santa Cruz beginning in 2019. Khojah earned a PhD in bioengineering from UCLA, and a master's degree in chemical and biological engineering from King Abdullah University for Science and Technology.
