What We Do
Our lab works at the interface of medicine and engineering with an emphasis on precisely controlling the physical and chemical properties of particles and biomaterials. The lab environment fosters multidisciplinary interaction between graduate and undergraduate researchers from the departments of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, and Chemistry. Postdoctoral researchers and visiting scientists with diverse training in engineering, chemistry and life sciences enhance the multidisciplinary environment. In addition, we have several ongoing collaborations with researchers at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas State University, and several industrial sponsors.
