André E. Nel

Chief, UCLA Division of Nanomedicine

André Nel is a tenured Professor and Chief of the Division of NanoMedicine at UCLA. He runs the Cellular Immunology Activation Laboratory in the Johnson Cancer Center and the Laboratory for Nanotoxicology Testing and Research in the CNSI at UCLA. Dr. Nel obtained his M.B.,Ch.B. (MD) and Doctorate of Medicine (PhD equivalent) degrees from the University of Stellenbosch in Cape Town, South Africa, and subsequently did Clinical Immunology and Allergy training at UCLA. Dr. Nel’s chief research interests are: (i) Nanomedicine and Nanobiology, including the nanobio interface its relationship to nanomaterial toxicity and biocopatability; (ii) The role of pollutant particles in asthma, with particular emphasis on the role of oxidative stress in the generation of airway inflammation and airway hyperreactivity; (iii) the role of oxidative stress in immune senescence. These studies are funded by personal RO1 grants from the NIH, the NIAD-funded Asthma and Immunology Disease Clinical Research Center, an EPA STAR award, and a UC Lead Campus Program for Nanotoxicology Research. Dr Nel is the Principal Investigator of the UCLA Asthma and Immunology Disease Center, Co-Director of the Southern California Particle Center and Director of the University of California Nanotoxicology Research and Training program. He served as Chair of the Allergy Immunology Transplant Research Committee at the NIAID and is Chair of the Air Pollution Committee in the AAAAI. Dr. Nel is a member of the ASCI, AAAAI, AAI and the Western Association of Physicians.
