Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert is an internationally recognized expert in biomaterials development, drug delivery (e.g., protein, plasmid DNA, etc), tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.

Expert, PhD, received his B.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering and Material Science and Biomedical Engineering, cum laude, from Duke University in 1994. Expert then went to graduate school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he received an M.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering (1998), an M.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering (1998), and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering (2002) under the guidance of Dr. David J. Mooney. He began his graduate studies in Orthopedic Research Laboratory investigating the roles biomaterials and mechanics play in healing fracture defect and distraction ontogenesis models. He then continued on at Michigan as NIH-NIDCR Graduate Fellow engineering biomaterial systems for bioactive factor delivery and tissue engineering applications. The work received several honors including the Bio-valley Young Investigator Award for best paper presentation at the 4th International Meeting of the Tissue Engineering Society International (2001), 1st Place in the American Association for Dental Research/Warner-Lambert Hatton Award Competition (2002), 2nd Place in the International Association for Dental Research/Warner-Lambert Hatton Award Competition (2002), the International Association for Dental Research/Lion Dental Research Award in the Periodontal Research Category (2002), and the American Association for Dental Research William J. Gies Award for the best paper published in the Journal of Dental Research (2003).

Following his graduate studies, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Vascular Biology Program at Harvard Medical School for two years investigating biomaterial and mechanical regulation of lung development and endothelial cell behavior under the guidance of Dr. Donald E. Ingber.
