Rachael Oldinski's Biography

Rachael Oldinski, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Vermont

Dr. Rachael Oldinski’s research program revolves around sustainable biomaterial design and fabrication for drug delivery, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine applications. The Engineered Biomaterials Research Laboratory, under Dr. Oldinski’s direction, investigates the fundamental understanding and development of polymeric materials for biological applications with a specific emphasis on tissue regeneration and drug delivery. Specifically, Dr. Oldinski’s group critically and logically examines the role biomaterials and physical environments play to impact cell behavior. Areas of interest include: (i) developing novel polymeric materials and precursors; (ii) utilizing processing techniques to fabricate scaffolds with the desired micro- and macroscopic structures both spatially and temporally; (iii) investigating the interaction of cells with these materials while developing materials-based techniques to control cell differentiation; and (iv) using polymers to control the delivery of therapeutic molecules, including anticancer agents.

The development of stimuli-responsive, or ‘smart’ biomaterials is critical to the manipulative manufacturing of custom tissue engineering scaffolds and implants. This talk will focus on the modification of a seaweed derivative, alginate, for the design of sustainable materials for tissue engineering construct development using 3D printing technology.
