Professor Donnelly deeply involves students in all aspects of his research. His research group teams up with engineers to create novel regenerative-medicine devices and nano-materials. We collaborate with Prof. Liz Orwin in the engineering department to help develop a “brain patch,” a band-aid-like cell-delivery system that employs chitosan nanoparticles and stem cells to treat traumatic-brain-injury wounds. We also collaborate with Prof. Albert Dato in the engineering department to develop new methods for the efficient production of high-purity graphene powder.
Students who work with Prof. Donnelly are exposed to many areas of experimental physics, typically work in teams, and are self-motivated.
