Dziubla Laboratory


Over the past 60+ years, the discoveries made in the field of biomaterials have revolutionized the health care industry. Immeasurable benefits from blood compatible tubing, bone implants, and drug delivery devices have facilitated new areas of health care including regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. The hallmark of these materials are their biocompatibility. Yet, biocompatibility is not a bulk property but rather a feature of the application and setting in which the material is used. Our laboratory is interested in taking advantage of specific tissue/cellular processes (e.g., oxidative stress, adhesion molecule expression) to design new polymeric biomaterials for cancer therapy and regenerative medicine applications.
