John T. Wilson, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering

B.S., Oregon State University, 2002
Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009

Wilson’s research interests focus on developing molecularly engineered materials for biomedical applications, with an emphasis on intracellular delivery of biologics, cancer immunotherapy and cell-based therapy for diabetes. His group brings together expertise in advanced polymerization techniques, self-assembling soft materials and drug delivery to: control the intracellular trafficking of peptide, protein and nucleic acid drugs, with an emphasis on delivery of immunomodulatory compounds; design controlled release systems for spatiotemporally regulated drug delivery; and chemically re-engineer cell surfaces with bioactive molecules, polymer thin films and nanoparticles for applications in cancer immunotherapy and diabetes.
