The Hettiaratchi Lab is a new bioengineering research group in the University of Oregon’s Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact.
We are actively recruiting enthusiastic scientists and engineers to join our team!
We combine expertise in chemical and biomedical engineering to design biomaterials to control protein delivery to injured tissues.
The Knight Campus receives a second $500 million gift from Phil and Penny Knight! See more details and the video of the official announcement here.
