Ph.D. student Gary Liu investigates drug delivery frontiers for kidney disease treatment

At the age of five, second-year UW Bioengineering Ph.D. student Gary Liu was diagnosed with a chronic condition called minimal change kidney disease. His experience with the disease inspired him to study bioengineering and develop solutions to treat kidney disease. With bioengineering, Gary aims to improve his own health and help others suffering from kidney disease.
