Abstract

Dr. Leipzig has active research funding for the study of syringomyelia (Conquer Chiari Foundation) as well as the translation of oxygenated hydrogel dressings for wound healing (NIH).  Additionally, he recently formed a company and was selected for Ohio Third Frontier funding (TVSF) to commercialize his oxygenated wound dressing technology.

 

Bio

Nic D. Leipzig is the Iredell Chair Assistant Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Akron. He received a B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering from McGill University (Montreal, Quebec) in 2001 and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Rice University (Houston, Texas) in 2006 under Dr. Kyriacos A. Athanasiou (Distinguished Professor, Chair, Department of Biomedical Engineering, UC Davis). He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto (Toronto, Ontario) in the department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry from 2006 to 2009 under Dr. Molly S. Shoichet (Canada Research Chair in Tissue Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry). Previously Dr. Leipzig has studied single cartilage cell mechanics and gene expression changes due to mechanotransduction as well as the development of protein-biomaterial scaffolds to specifically guide adult neural stem cell differentiation. His current research focuses on tissue engineering integrating custom 3D engineered microenvironments. He is especially interested in chronic wound healing and the central nervous system (CNS) with the objective of generating new clinical treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. Nic Leipzig currently has 22 peer-reviewed publications, 2 book chapters and a patent pending. He has active research funding for the study of syringomyelia (Conquer Chiari Foundation) as well as the translation of oxygenated hydrogel dressings for wound healing (NIH).  Additionally, he recently formed a company and was selected for Ohio Third Frontier funding (TVSF) to commercialize his oxygenated wound dressing technology.
