Welcome to the Laboratory for Advanced Biomaterials!

The Biomaterials Laboratory is located in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Akron.  Our lab is focusing on designing and developing materials to address some key challenges in biomedical and biotech applications. We are particularly interested in the study of biomaterials for the delivery of therapeutic drugs, the injectable cell delivery, and the control of biofilm. In addition, we also seek to understand the self-assembly of long peptide amphiphiles. Our research is highly multidisciplinary in nature, and it covers chemical & molecular engineering, protein engineering, polymer, materials science and nanotechnology.
