Research Interests

Dr. Green’s Biomaterials and Drug Delivery Laboratory is interested in biomaterials, drug delivery, gene therapy, nanobiotechnology, and cell engineering. Research findings — and the technologies developed — are applied in the fields of ophthalmology, oncology, and regenerative medicine.

The lab works within the chemistry/biology/engineering interface to answer fundamental scientific questions, and to create innovative technologies and therapeutics that can directly benefit human health.

Current projects include:

  1. Development of safe and effective biodegradable nanoparticles for DNA and siRNA delivery to treat cancer
  2. Polymeric microparticle-based biological treatments for age-related macular degeneration
  3. Design of biomimetic artificial antigen presenting cells for immunoengineering
  4. Enabling technologies for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
