The Hettiaratchi Lab
Marian Hettiaratchi officially joined the Knight Campus in January 2020. Prior to that, she was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto where her research focused on combining chemical and biomedical engineering approaches to create effective biomaterials that can precisely deliver proteins for tissue repair.
Her work involves developing protein delivery vehicles for regenerative medicine by integrating cutting-edge techniques in protein engineering, polymer chemistry, and computational modeling to design versatile, clinically-relevant biomaterials.
