Welcome to the Biological and Applied Nanotechnology Laboratory

The laboratory for the Biological and Applied Nanotechnology, formerly the laboratory for BioNano Probes and Biomimetic Materials, is directed by Dr. Jessica Winter in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH.


About Dr. Winter

Dr. Jessica Winter is a professor in the departments of Chemical and Biomolecular and Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University. Dr. Winter joined the faculty in 2006. She completed her graduate work under the guidance of Dr. Christine Schmidt (BME) and Dr. Brian Korgel (ChE) at the University of Texas at Austin in the area of biological nanoparticles. Her postdoctoral work was performed at the Center for Innovative Visual Rehabilitation, a collaborative effort between Harvard Medical School and MIT to develop a prosthesis to restore lost visual function. Her work, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Rizzo, III (Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical) and Dr. Stuart Cogan (EIC Laboratories, Norwood, MA) examined the application of tissue engineering techniques to neural prosthetic devices.

Dr. Winter is the recipient of an NSF IGERT fellowship, NSF graduate research fellowship, Biomedical Engineering Society Graduate Student Award, and the Materials Research Society Gold Graduate Student Award.
