Dr. Douglas Hamilton
MSK Research Areas of Interest
Design of model systems to assess the factors that govern cellular interactions with bio(active) materials, in vitro and in vivo evaluation of biomaterials and cellular response, and the role of proteins in biomaterial integration in bone and connective tissue
Dr. Hamilton is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology at Western. Research in his laboratory is focused on the molecular biology underlying wound repair and regeneration in connective tissues including bone, skin and the periodontium.
His research goals include assessing the molecular factors involved in degeneration and regeneration of skin, bone and gingival connective tissues, enhancing wound repair around/with bio (active) materials, and design of new topographical and chemical features to enhance integration of biomaterials.
