RESEARCH/TEACHING INTERESTS

Dr. Lyon’s research interests center around the design, synthesis and application of soft (synthetic and natural polymer-based) nanomaterials in bioanalytical and regenerative medicine applications. Specific projects under investigation include the development of artificial platelet technologies, colloid-modified biopolymer scaffolds, self-healing polymer films, new bioanalytical sensors, and reconfigurable materials to direct cell proliferation and differentiation.
