Dr. Swindle-Reilly’s research focuses on the design of polymeric biomaterials for soft tissue repair and drug delivery with focused applications in ophthalmology and wound healing. Studies in the lab focus on polymer synthesis, mechanical characterization, cell-material interactions, and controlled release. A major focus of our work is engineering biomimetic polymers that have properties similar to the native tissue to improve wound healing and outcomes after ophthalmic surgery. Our laboratory is currently investigating materials-based solutions for corneal wound healing, cataract surgery, vitreoretinal surgery, and optic neuropathy.
