Dr. Joel Schneider
Peptide Design and Materials

Research Summary

The Schneider group designs and characterizes novel materials for use in tissue regenerative therapy, parenteral delivery of therapeutics, delivery of cells, and antibacterial therapy. We are particularly interested in peptide and protein-based hydrogel materials formed by self-assembly mechanisms. Our work spans molecular conception, materials synthesis, nano- and bulk mechanical materials characterization, cell-material interactions, biocompatibility, and assessment of performance efficacy. Our basic research establishes how material composition and structure influences material function, and lays the foundation to ultimately translate materials to the clinic.
