- Welcome to the Monroe Biomaterials Lab!
- Our research utilizes fundamental advances in polymer chemistry to develop safer and more effective medical devices. This research includes both basic and application-focused work to fabricate and characterize biomaterial scaffolds with improved healing outcomes.
- Some current areas of focus include:
- - Hemorrhage control
- - Wound healing
- - Shape memory polymers
- - Hydrogels
- - Degradable scaffolds
- - Antimicrobial scaffolds
- We are part of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute at Syracuse University.
