Dr. Jedlicka joined the Lehigh faculty in January 2008. Her current research interests focus on the fundamental interactions between mammalian cells and cell culture substrates. Specifically, she is interested in developing reproducible, stable biointerfaces that communicate with cells and ultimately modulate cell fate and function. Research in her lab is centered on the novel development of new implantable biomaterials, as well as a variety of characterization methods, including the adaptation of non-traditional methods to biological problems.
Research areas: biomaterials synthesis & characterization, neuroengineering, biointerface design, surface science, neuronal cell biology
