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 Hettiaratchi lab is officially 1 year old! We welcome rotation students Andres Guerrero and Wyatt Parks from the department of chemistry and biochemistry to the lab!
We published our first review paper, led by graduate student Jonathan Dorogin, in the 2021 Emerging Investigators issue of Biomaterials Science.
September was a busy month for the Hettiaratchi lab! We welcome graduate student Jonathan Dorogin, rotating graduate student John O’Hara-Smith, and undergraduate student Henry Hochstatter. We also moved into the new Knight Campus building!
Congratulations to Ireland Johnson and her mentor Annie Gilbert for winning the Peter O’Day Fellowship in Biological Sciences! Ireland’s project will focus on improving the versatility of demineralized bone matrix as a treatment for bone injury.
The Hettiaratchi Lab receives a grant from the Collins Medical Trust to develop a biomaterial strategy to improve protein delivery to large bone fractures.
We welcome rotation student, Dillon Willis, from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and undergraduates, Branden Henry, Hons Rajabzadeh, and Ireland Johnson to the lab!
The lab officially opens its doors!
