About

Katelyn Swindle-Reilly started as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering effective February 1st, 2016 and will be appointed as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in BME on September 1st, 2016.

Professor Swindle-Reilly’s research interests in biomaterials and biomedical product design are an excellent fit with OSU’s expertise in tissue engineering and regeneration medicine. In particular, Prof. Swindle-Reilly brings a broad range of engineering expertise that will be used to address important clinical issues in wound healing and ophthalmology.

Professor Swindle-Reilly holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (2004), a M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis (2006) and a PhD in Energy, Environment and Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis (2008). She completed postdoctoral training at St. Louis University and for the past 4 years she has been a Senior Scientist at Rochal Industries where she oversaw the development of several wound care and soft tissue regeneration products. Her research interests are centered on the biomimetic design of optimized biomaterials for tissue repair and in addition to publishing in the biomaterials literature, Dr. Swindle-Reilly also holds 2 approved patents and 4 patent applications. She has written or served as sub-awardee PI on eight successfully funded grants totaling over $5 million through NIH, NSF, and DOD.

Dr. Swindle-Reilly also has outstanding teaching credentials in Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate courses in wide range of topics including Design, Biomaterials and Quantitative Physiology. She has also actively participated in outreach activities including mentoring the undergraduate biomedical engineering society at Washington University and the Women in Science Day, Young Scientist Program also at WashU.

Graduate student research opportunities are currently available.
