Description

RESPONSIBILITIES Chair, Department of Biomedical Engineering

INTERESTS Saltzman's research is motivated by the desire to create safer and more effective medical and surgical therapy. He focuses on tissue engineering and on creating better methods for drug delivery. His group has developed technology based on the use of bio-compatible polymeric materials for the controlled delivery of drugs, proteins, and genes. They have also developed new polymeric materials that influence the growth and assembly of tissues. However, even better than treating disease is to prevent disease from occurring in the first place. Saltzman's intent, therefore, is to develop the most economical, transportable, and accessible methods for disease prevention.

Saltzman is also committed to training a new generation of chemical and biomedical engineers. He believes in providing a stimulating and collaborative environment that promotes the free exchange of ideas and encourages creative blending of technology and modern biological science.
