Ryan Hartwell


Ryan Hartwell (Graduate Student)

Supervisor: Dr. Aziz Ghahary

Term: 2010-02-01~2013-01-31

Project title: Development and evaluation of in-situ forming scaffolds for treatment of burns and chronic wounds


Ryan is a PhD student in the Experimental Medicine Program under the supervision of Dr. Aziz Ghahary. Originally joining the Burn & Wound Healing Lab as a Masters Student, Ryan has since transferred to the PhD program to continue his work on engineering non-rejectable skin substitutes and cell delivery vehicles for transplantation. The core objective of his work is to design in-situ forming, composite scaffolds that promote normal tissue repair for chronic wounds, burns and cell delivery. Ryan is involved in many aspects of his group’s work and has particular expertise in 3D culture, tissue engineering, biomaterials, histology and immunostaining. In the two years that he has spent at UBC, Ryan has published as either author or co-author over 10 publications in the fields of biomaterials, dermatology, diabetes and wound healing. As an SRTC scholar, Ryan is a member of the Student Workshop and Student Research committee. Ryan’s extracurricular activities include consulting for industry, Triathlon, surfing and skiing, and in 2010 he completed the Canadian Ironman.
