Environmental portrait of Dr. Jonathan Lovell, Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering
These researchers are employing biological materials, from stem cells for tissue engineering to cellulose for biofuels to create new materials and devices.
The breakthroughs of these biological and biomedical materials and device researchers are:
- Discovering new ways to improve the bonds between human-made implants and bone
- Developing new imaging and drug delivery agents
- Creating new imaging modalities, such as photoacoustic imaging
- Investigating how inorganic materials (e.g. kidney stones) form in biological systems
