Pathways to commercialization of medical products or devices
April 16 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm| Free
Speaker: Michael Mason, Ph.D. Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, University of Maine.
About the Speaker: Dr. Mason is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering and the Associate Director of the Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering. Dr. Mason’s research focuses on understanding and utilizing physical properties that are defined at the single molecule or nanoscale to develop new materials and technologies which utilize them. Dr. Mason earned undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Physics at the University of Puget Sound in 1995. He went on to obtain his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2001, working in the area of nanomaterials and single molecule/quantum dot imaging and photophysics.
Before joining the Engineering faculty at UMaine in 2004, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Yale University in the Department of Applied Physics developing spectroscopic imaging tools for real-time chemical analysis and dynamics in complex systems. Recent work in the Mason lab includes the development of methods for the generation of biopolymer composite based porous solid materials and commercialization of these materials for use in biomedical applications. Dr. Mason’s research is highly interdisciplinary bringing together chemists, physicists, materials scientists, biochemists and biologists with engineers and, recently, health professionals to address a broad range of challenges.
