Jason A. Burdick, PhD is the Robert D. Bent Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Burdick’s research involves the development of hydrogels through techniquessuch as photocrosslinking and self-assembly and through processing using approaches such as electrospinning and 3D printing. The applications of his research range from controlling stem cell differentiation through material cues to fabricating scaffolding for regenerative medicine and tissue repair. Jason currently has over 220 peer-reviewed publications and has been awarded a K22 Scholar Development and Career Transition Award through the National Institutes of Health, an Early Career Award through the Coulter Foundation, a National Science Foundation CAREER award, a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, and an American Heart Association Established Investigator Award. He was recently awarded the Clemson Award for Basic Research from the Society for Biomaterials and the Heilmeier Faculty Award for Excellence in Research at Penn. He is on the editorial boards of Tissue Engineering, Biofabrication, and Journal of Biomedical Materials Research A, and is an Associate Editor for ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering.
