Bioengineering

Patrick is a graduate student in Dr. Patrick Stayton’s┬álab. He is developing polymeric drug delivery platforms, with a particular interest in delivery systems that┬átarget specific tissues or cell types. This research will improve the stability and delivery efficiency of drug cargo, as well as reduce off-target effects. In his previous work, Patrick investigated the impact of intermolecular interactions between drugs and polymers on their loading, as well as drug release from polymer scaffolds. Patrick received his B.E. in Chemical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.
