Current Position: Assistant Professor
Keywords Research Areas: Nano/micro particles for drug delivery/imaging; tissue engineering scaffolds & systems; biosensors;MEMS fabrication;nanofabrication; surface chemistry & polymer thin films.
Synopsis Of Research:

The Bergkvist Lab is involved in several research thrusts: i) polymerization and surface funcationalization using gas-phase chemistries (monolayer chemistry, surface grafted polymer systems etc.), for semiconductor and biotechnology applications, ii) design and fabrication of well-defined tissue engineering scaffolds via nanomaterials and NEMS/MEMS fabrication using both soft/hard materials, and iii) nanomedicine and drug delivery/imaging systems, mainly focusing on the use of biological derived materials. Projects in the group range from biosensor applications, defined microporous cell scaffolds (2D/3D), targeted drug delivery using protein-based nanoparticles and polysacccharide dendrites.
