Research Interests

Exciting advances in biomedical engineering have saved and improved the lives of missions of people in Canada and around the world.  We are currently on the threshold of dramatic medical advancements where in situ tissue repair and regeneration is a realistic goal.  The achievement of this goal is dependent on the availability of appropriate biomaterials, techniques for assessing biomaterial activity, and methods of processing these materials.  My research projects aim to address these issues by investigating the use of the biological polymer chitosan, as a tissue-regenerating matrix.
