Our lab primarily studies Nitric Oxide-based multi-functional materials under the following areas: A) Biomaterial NO delivery, B) Controlled release of NO from biomaterials, C) Bactericidal properties of NO, and D) Multi-modal surface focused anti-coagulation. The fundamental understanding and new materials generated are then applied to medical challenges  including bacterial infection control, re-stenosis, device thrombosis, and related areas. 

The biomaterials and medical device innovation lab applies knowlege of blood biomaterial interaction and the normal anti-clotting mechanisms of the endothelium to the creation of 1) anti-clotting artificial surfaces 2) anti-septic artificial surfaces, and 3) next generation "stealth" blood-contacting devices used to support and treat cardiac and pulmonary disease patients.
