Biomaterial Science & Engineering

Nicholas Abbott

Dr. Abbott is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests span colloid, interface, and surfactant science. A particular focus is directed toward the design of new surfactants that can be placed under active control, the use of liquid crystalline materials to amplify biomolecular interactions, and the design of interfaces with chemistry and topography patterned on nanometer dimensions.

Jonathan McAnulty

Dr. McAnulty is an Associate Professor of Surgery at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a general surgeon with expertise in microvascular surgery, solid organ transplantation, and organ preservation. Dr. McAnulty, in collaboration with Dr. Christopher Murphy, has validated a model of delayed skin wound healing for the testing of compounds that stimulate the healing of wounds.

Christopher Murphy

Dr. Murphy is a founder, serves as CEO, and provides consulting in veterinary ophthalmology.

Dr. Murphy is a Board Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist, and Professor of Comparative Ophthalmology in the Schools of Veterinary Medicine & Medicine, University of California-Davis. Dr. Murphy has advanced training and expertise in corneal diseases and surgery, comparative physiological optics, comparative ocular anatomy, as well as ocular diseases of laboratory and exotic animal species.

His laboratory has several active areas of research:
