Biotherapeutic Development and Delivery Lab

Principal Investigator: 
3113 A. James Clark Hall

Our research aims to uncover new biological insights towards the design and development of novel biotherapeutics (aka biopharmaceuticals), including proteins, extracellular vesicles (exosomes) and others. We also strive to develop new approaches to drug delivery and biomanufacturing using fundamental tools from both engineering and biology. Employing techniques in molecular biology, protein design and engineering, biomaterials and nanotechnology, we are primarily interested in developing new biotechnologies to address a variety of clinical needs, including wound repair, cardiovascular disease, cancer, brain and spinal cord injuries, neurological diseases, osteoarthritis, sepsis, and others. Overarching goals of the lab include developing therapeutics towards clinical translation and endowing trainees with the skills and knowledge necessary to become leaders in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
