PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Jeremy L. Gilbert
Founder, Syracuse Biomaterials Institute
Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Biomedical Materials Research: Part B
Professor of Biomaterials
Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering
L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science
Syracuse University

Address: 303C Bowne Hall

Phone: 315.443.2105

Email: gilbert@syr.edu

Research Interests: Dr. Gilbert's research interest is the study of Biomaterials, that is, the study of materials used to repair, replace, or augment structures within the body. Specific research areas within this field include: development of novel bone cements; electrochemical phenomenon associated with metallic implant materials including corrosion, oxygen reactions, cell response to electrochemistry, protein-electrochemistry interactions and electric field generation; material-biological environment interaction including protein-surface interactions; micromechanics of surfaces and viable biological tissues; orthopedic implant design and degradation mechanisms; fracture and fatigue processes in biomaterials, medical device retrieval and failure analysis; performance testing of medical devices; novel instrumentation development for biomaterials characterization; in-situ AFM; nanoindentation of polymeric biomaterials.

 

 

GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

 

Eric S. Ouellette
Doctoral Student
Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering
Syracuse Biomaterials Institute

Education: BS Biomedical Engineering, Syracuse University, 2010

Address: 408 Bowne Hall

Email: esouelle@syr.edu

Research Interests: Eric's research interest involves melt-spinning of polymer fibers, and characterizing the structural and mechanical changes that take place in the processing of these fibers. Additionally, I am interested in hot compaction processes to produce self-reinforced composites (SRC's) and the relationship between fiber properties and those of the resulting composite.

Greg Kubacki

Doctoral Student
Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering
Syracuse Biomaterials Institute

Education: B.S., Chemical Engineering, Virginia Tech, 2013

 

Address: 413 Bowne Hall

 

Email: gwkuback@syr.edu

 

Research Interests: Greg’s research focuses on the interactions of inflammatory cells with metallic implants in experiments that combine cell culture, electrochemistry, mechanics, and molecular biology.

 

Aarti Shenoy

Doctoral Student

 

Education: BE Biomedical Engineering, University of Mumbai, India

 

Address: 412 Bowne Hall

 

Email: aashenoy@syr.edu

 

Research Interests: Aarti’s research focuses on the fretting corrosion behavior at modular interfaces in orthopedic devices, such as spinal fixation systems and hip replacement systems. The effects of material combinations, surface topography, design parameters, mechanical (applied load, friction, contact stresses) and electrochemical (surface potential, currents) factors, and surgical factors (assembly of modular implants, particularly hip replacement systems) form a large part of her research efforts.
