Written presentation of an original research topic in biomedical engineering and biotechnology, which demonstrates the knowledge and capability to conduct independent research. The thesis shall be completed under the supervision of a faculty advisor. An oral examination in defense of the thesis is required.

A culminating experience in which the student synthesizes his/her course knowledge and experimental skills into a brief but detailed experimental study, which also involves cross-field interdisciplinary cooperation. Although in some cases this project may be done individually under the supervision of one faculty member, it is expected that students will join in a team-based, collaborative effort involving students from a number of different disciplines, post-doctoral fellows and industry representatives and with intercampus participation.

Investigations of a fundamental and/or applied nature. Independent Research is often work on a future dissertation undertaken before the student has satisfied the qualification steps for BMB 720. With approval of student's graduate committee, up to 15 credits of BMB 630 may be applied to the 30-credit requirement for dissertation research.

Doctoral students' research in progress, emphasizing not only research but also communication and writing. Every active doctoral candidate will present her or his work in progress in the seminar, and in addition there will be at least two presentations from external speakers. Students will write summaries of each presentation. Students must complete this course in at least two different semesters. Course is graded pass-fail.

Research interests

  • Nano Materials
  • Vapor deposition of nano materials
  • Biosensors
  • Drug Delivery

The Nanobioscience lab at UMass Dartmouth focuses on the synthesis and the applications of bioinspired nanomaterials, using techniques such as vapor phase deposition, and synthesis in solution. We are also interested in studying the interactions of nanostructures with biological materials, both in vitro and in vivo. Some of the applications include the development of coatings for implants, drug delivery, real-time chemical and biological sensors and nanobioelectronics. The students working in my lab will have an opportunity to gain research experience working in multi-disciplinary fields such as chemical synthesis, cell culture, mechanical and electrical characterization techniques.
