Associate Chair, Molecular Cellular and Integrative Biosciences
Daniel HayesThe Hayes lab group focuses on biomaterials engineering for applications ranging from regenerative medicine to lab-on-a-chip technologies. The research efforts in these areas are materials centered with an emphasis on nanomaterials, macromolecules and composite structures. Ongoing efforts in the lab include the development of optically and magnetically modulated drug delivery systems, quasi 3D cell sheet culture systems, cell encapsulation and delivery materials and hybrid in situ polymerizing grafts/augments.
Associate Prof of Biomedical Engineering
